Parchment Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Vintage Eames DSW Side Chairs
These beautiful original Herman Miller Eames parchment shells have developed a distinctive natural patina over its many years, making them truly unique. Paired with their used, high quality dark DSW bases, these chairs are fantastic versions of Charles and Ray’s ‘chairs for the masses’.
Parchment was one of the first colours used when the original shell, the arm shell, was introduced in 1950 and it was used ever since, being used on the side shell ever since its introduction in 1952/53. Whilst it may not be the most coveted version of these iconic shells, parchment shells age in their own unique way giving them an almost iconic trait.
Available on its own, as a pair or as a set of four, these chairs would make a great addition to any home or even office space due to their neutral and yet unique colour finish.
The rich colour of the shells has aged naturally ever so slightly but they are in generally good vintage condition.
The ‘C’ with the star logo indicates these shells originate from Herman Miller’s Cincinnati Milacron factory.
The value of an Eames shell is affected by many various factors; namely the shells age, condition and factory of origin. These are among the most significant factors that collectors/investors look for. With these shells being one of the original colours the shell chairs were produced in they should see a moderate interest level.
