Black Vinyl Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Eames Upholstered DAR Arm Chairs
A very rare find, here we have a pair of all black, original Herman Miller and Eames side arm shell chairs with upholstery designed by Alexander Girard. To find these all black, vinyl, upholstered chairs in the same upholstered finish is really quite remarkable and they would be perfect for any dining or living arrangements you require with their easily cleanable surfaces and sturdy finish.
The Eames Shell chair has become a much coveted item, owing to its wide ranging versatility and the range of bases the shells were offered upon. Upholstered versions were introduced with the assistance of the iconic Alexander Girard not long after the original, standard fiberglass shells were released and they came in many various forms. From all fabric to all vinyl, Girard utilised all he could to build an eclectic range of Eames tops for Herman Milller.
These all black beauties are in very good condition for their age with only a quick clean up required to make them shine again.
The Arm Shells display the 2 triangles logo denoting their origin as from the General American Transport Company; one of the three original factories to produce the Eames shell.
Due to their being so popular, Eames shells are steadily gaining in value, though the rate at which they do so is determined by many factors. Aspects such as the age, origin, colour and condition of the shell all play a part in evaluating the shells worth. These particular shells are in very good condition and, though from different factories, these shells should prove to be worthy investments, especially as a pair.
