The history of the Eames shells’ is well known, from conception to production, these iconic chairs have maintained firm interest. Throughout their production they were produced by a variety of factories resulting in various logos appearing on the underside of the shells. The Flame logo, however, is one that seems rather hard to define. Its origin is unknown along with what it is meant to represent. What we do know is that shells that display this usually have a bold colour with a highly fibrous finish, which this shell does have.
The shell is in fantastic vintage condition with no chips or dents.
The two Triangles on the underside of the shell indicates this shell originates from the General American Transport Company, a factory which was used for a very short period of time.
Eames shells vary in terms of investment value due to so many factors. The age, origin and colour of the shell coupled with its condition are key aspects along with the originality of the base the shell is upon. Parchment is a common colour for these shells, but with this having the Flame Logo on the underside of the shell, it should prove to be a slightly more coveted investment piece.
