4 x (Set) Herman Miller Vintage Original Eames Navy Blue Fiberglass Side Shell on DSW Base
The Herman Miller Eames side shells in Navy blue are one of the most loved and sought after due to the way the white visible fibers appear in the fiberglass, absolutely gorgeous.
These beauties were found in an old California home and have been together since they left the factory back in the mid 1960's.
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.
In great original vintage condition.
The fiber shells are in great condition with no cracks, chips or defects only normal wear to be expected on 50 year old chairs with some marks etc and around the top of the shock mounts, normal with darker colour shells.
The used DSW bases show no signs of such and are mostly perfect.
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 Blue navy shells are certainly sought after and this means that they will grow in value over the years.
