Yellow Herman Miller Vintage Original Eames Upholstered DSR Side Shell
A used, original Herman Miller by Eames white fiberglass shell, with original Alex Girard designed yellow upholstery attached on top, and newer used black DSW dowel base. This bright, colorful yellow will add excitement and liveliness to your living room, not to mention it being on a very iconic DSR Effiel base.
The Eames shells require little introduction with prototypes beginning in the 1940s, production began in 1950. Arm shells were the first to be produced and the side shells were introduced in 1952/1953.
Alexander Girard was commissioned to help design a wide variety of upholstery finishes for both the side and arm shells, providing an alternative to the standard fiberglass shells and expanding the buying options for these chairs.
The side shell is in good condition for its age with only some light marking expected with age. The fabric does display a little more of its age, and the fabric may need some cleaning and maintenance. Further images are available upon request.
The ‘S’ stamp signifies the shell originates from the Summit Herman Miller factory.
The Eames shells are a great investment piece, but many factors affect how valuable they are. The origin of the shell, its age and even the colour can have an effect on its value. A great combination of the upholstery and shell on this particular chair, and being a trendy and modern colour, this shell definitely will be a very good investment.
