Medium Grey Pair (2) Herman Miller Vintage Eames DSW Side Shell Chairs

Sorry, currently out of stock

Product Description

A pair of iconic, vintage, rare and desirable Eames Herman Miller medium grey side shells on used dark maple DSW bases are perfect chairs for any occasion.

These brilliant examples are excellent versions of the iconic shell chair with lots of fibre and their rather professional colour. The fiberglass chairs have always been popular and their versatility is increasing this year by year. 

The earlier shells had a base colour and displayed the wondrous texture of the ‘fibres’ in the shell. Later versions of the shells, introduced by Herman Miller, could also be bought with an upholstered cover, from vinyl to fabric. To create the amazing patterns on the fabric finishes, Charles and Ray looked to the esteemed Alexander Girard to design them. 

Individual Characteristics

The chairs are in very good condition for their age. There are no chips or cracks and only a general clean may be needed. The chairs price reflects their good condition. Sold on second hand DSW dowel bases in great condition.

The star and crescent logo marks the two shells origin from the Cincinnati Milacron factory.

Investment Details

The investment value of these beautiful chairs depends on many factors: the age and condition of the shell, the rarity of its colour, the age of the base and where the shell was produced. Whilst all of the shell chairs are viable investments, these pieces are very reasonable investments being great examples of medium grey.
