2 x (Pair) x Herman Miller Vintage Original Eames Forest Green Side Shell on Black DSS Base
A pair of fantastic deep forest green Eames side shells with amazing visible fibers sat atop matching black powder coated DSS stacking bases make this a really desirable set.
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 original vintage condition.
The fiber shells are in a great vintage condition with beautiful visible fibers in the deep green of the shell.
The black DSS bases have some wear marks but are in excellent condition.
S in circle denotes the 'Summit' Herman Miller factory in Michigan.
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. Dark green shells as good as these are not common to find and these represent a really good investment on all fronts.
