2 x (Pair) Herman Miller Vintage Original Eames Greige Fiberglass Arm Shell on DAW Base
What an amazing matching pair of Eames arm DAW chairs in a most gorgeous light greige in perfect condition! These early Herman Miller chairs are dated April 1960.
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 amazing vintage tops are in near perfect condition with only light use considering the 55+ years of their life.
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. These greige shells are so beautiful, rare and matching in perfect condition making them high value investments.
