Cream Pair (2) Herman Miller Vintage Original Eames DSR Side Chairs With Alexander Girard Upholstery
These are a pair of rather unique Alexander Girard upholstered vintage Eames and Herman Miller DSR chairs on their uprated used bases. The cream and brown original fabric creates a great statement piece as it is complimented by the white of the shell and the stark black of the DSR Eiffel bases.
Fiberglass original shells always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibers in the shell itself. These particular shells have retained their strong white finish which still show the fibers. Upholstered versions were introduced by Herman Miller and many were used from the esteemed designer Alexander Girard, who designed a multitude of fabric finishes for one of his most favourite chairs, the Eames shell chair.
The fiber shells are in great vintage condition with no cracks, chips or defects.
The Alexander Girard fabric for Herman Miller is in a great condition for its age. There are no cuts or tears in them.
The ‘C’ with the star logo indicates these shells originate from Herman Miller’s Cincinnati factory.
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. Excellent examples of a lovely combination such as these represent a good value investment.
