Seal Brown Herman Miller Original Vintage Eames DAR Arm Shell Chair
This gorgeous, original, deep brown Herman Miller Eames arm shell is complimented perfectly with its used black DAR ‘Eiffel’ base creating a great dining chair. As a vintage brown shell it has retained its colour exceptionally well which is networked by the multitude of fibers crisscrossing through it.
A slightly more niche colour this chair actually works well in a wide range of environments and design styles. Either being a bold statement or sitting quietly in the background, the chair truly envisages the original desire the Eames had for a versatile and diverse design.
As a vintage version of the Eames shell, it is in very good condition. The back of the shell has formed a unique and distinct patina which gives the shell its character but there are no cracks or dents. There are some slight marks around the edging, expected with being a used vintage shell.
The used DAR base is in good sturdy condition with only natural marks expected with being used.
The ‘C’ with the star on the base of the shell dictates it was made at Herman Miller’s Cincinnati factory.
Eames Shells are always a coveted piece, but their investment value is determined by many disciplines. The older the shell, for example, will add to its investment value along with the rarity of the colour, the age of the base and the origin of production. As a great vintage shell this chair should prove to be a reasonable investment piece.
