Herman Miller Original Eames Kelly Green Fiberglass Arm RAR Rocking Shell Chair
This Kelly Green Eames fiberglass arm shell sits on a RAR rocking base and is visually absolutely stunning! The Kelly green colour is not for the faint hearted being so bright and bold but it will always be the centre of attention in any household!
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.
A newer version of the shell chair, the condition is exemplary.
The logo dictates the shell was made at the Herman Miller 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. The new edition of the Herman Miller shell will be a slow investment but on the rocker base will grow.
