Seal Brown Herman Miller Original Eames DSW Side Shell Chair
A deep brown original vintage Eames fiberglass side shell chair for Herman Miller on a used dark wood DSW base makes a real statement piece. The bold brown shell has a wonderful deep colour with fantastic spider-web fibers. A really nice and desirable example.
The Eames shell series chairs really do not need any introduction. With early prototypes beginning in the late 1940's, production began on the Eames' dream of 'chairs for the masses' in 1950 with the arm and then the sides later in 1952/53. The original and vintage fiberglass chairs were so versatile and so modern that they only increase in popularity as the years go by.
As a vintage shell this is in good condition. The deep colour is still strong and the strong fibrous finish is excellent.
The ‘H’ logo indicates this shell is an early Herman Miller shell and it also sports the coveted and rare flame logo.
Eames Shell Chairs vary from 1 to 5 stars for investment. The reasons depend on so many factors but mainly the condition, the rarity of the colour, the originality of the base, the age and of course the maker are those that determine. As an excellent example of an original shell, this chair should prove to be a good investment piece, especially with the presence of the flame logo.
