2 x (Pair) Herman Miller Original Eames Black Fiberglass Side Shell on DSW Base
This pair of lovely Eames side shells on a dark wooden DSW bases and in black fiberglass top is always one of our most favourite combinations. Black is one of the most desirable shell chair colours as it shows off all the love fibers in the top. The chair comes with a used DSW base that is not the original but is perfect for the chair.
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.
In great condition.
The fiber shells are in great condition with no cracks, chips or defects.
The base is used but has no real signs of such.
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. Black is a very desirable colour although this is relatively new edition of the Herman Miller shell so investment growth will be slower.
