The Eames shell series chairs really do not need any introduction. With early prototypes beginning in the late 1940's, production began on the Eames' dream of 'chairs for the masses' in 1950 with the arm and then the sides later in 1952/53. The original and vintage fiberglass chairs were so versatile and so modern that they only increase in popularity as the years go by.
Fiberglass originals always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibers in the shell itself. Upholstered version were introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
As with many vintage chairs, there are signs of use and the fabric will need some further cleaning, although the base remains sturdy and strong as the base is new -further images are available upon request.

Eames Shell Chairs vary from 1 to 5 stars for investment. The reasons depend on various factors but mainly the condition, the rarity of the colour, the originality of the base, the age and of course the maker are those that determine. The colour of this particular chair is considered desirable, and would certainly add a splash of colour and liveliness to your homes.
