Herman Miller Original Eames Kelly Green Fiberglass DAW Dowel Arm Shell Chair
This Kelly Green fiberglass Eames arm shell for Herman Miller sits upon a complimentary dark DSW dowel base and is bold, bright and very beautiful. Kelly green is not a common colour and it is highly desirable.
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A newer version of the shell chair, the condition is exemplary.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 newer shell version is the only reason for a lower rating but it will still continue to grow in value over time.
