2 x (Pair) x Herman Miller Vintage Original Eames Orange Side Shell on DSW Base
This pair of fiberglass side shells in orange always look absolutely perfect sitting on top of dark wood DSW bases as they compliment so well with each other. These lovely chairs are an amazing vintage find. The chairs come 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 original vintage condition.
The fiber shells are in great condition with no cracks, chips or defects.
The used DSW bases show no signs of such and are mostly perfect.
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. Orange shells on dark wood DSW bases are a perfect combination
