Yellow Vintage Herman Miller Original Eames DSW Dining Side Shell Chair
This is a used, bright, Lemon Yellow DSW Dining Side Chair, complete with beautiful oak dowel base to create this iconic Herman Miller Eames chair. The bright lemon-yellow fiberglass shell is unique in its vivid colour, a perfect dining chair if you want to add a splash of colour and fun to your dining room.
The Eames shell series chairs really don’t 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 versions were introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
This vintage, lemon yellow DSW dining chair remains in excellent condition despite its age, as with many vintage products. The newer, replacement Herman Miller DSW bases are in good used condition. There are minor scratches around the edges, but the colour remains fabulously vibrant-further images are available upon request.
The patent label suggests that it is was manufactured around 1957-1959
Eames Shell Chairs vary from 1 to 5 stars for investment. The reasons depend on so many 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 vibrant and distinct colour of this particular top will help maintain steady interest, therefore making this year a fantastic investment considering this is a 1st-generation production.
