One of the original colours Charles and Ray used when producing these chairs, this style of the chair needs little introduction. This colour dates back to the origin of these shells in 1952/53 and still remains to be a very popular, and much desirable shell to own, truly highlighting the versatility of these chairs.
Original fiberglass shells are defined by their base colour which shows the vibrant fibers contained within the shell. This version of the Seafoam chair displays this perfectly.
As these are vintage shells, they will have signs of age and wear, and this chair does appear to have a surface scratch and marks and does have a small hole in the seat section; the price does reflect this. This walnut newer base is still in excellent condition.
Please note that the colour in the picture is slightly different from the actual chair, further images are available upon request. The picture is of a narrow mount shell, however the actual shell is a wide mount.
The 's' summit logo on the shell suggests that it was manufactured around 1959-1989.
Eames Side Shells are great investment pieces, but how much of an investment piece relies upon multiple factors; the age of the shell, the rarity of the colour, the manufacturer, the originality of the base and, of course, the condition of the shell. With this piece being a very good condition of the Seafoam version, its investment value is reasonable.
