Seal Brown Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Eames DSW Side Shell Chairs
A pair of deep brown original vintage Eames fiberglass side shell chairs for Herman Miller on a used dark wood DSW bases make real statement pieces. The bold brown shells have a wonderful deep colour with fantastic spider-web fibers. A pair of really nice and desirable examples.
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 vintage shells these are in good condition. The deep colour is still strong and the strong fibrous finish is excellent.
The ‘H’ logo indicates these shells are early Herman Miller shells and they also sport 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 excellent examples of original shells, these chairs should prove to be good investment pieces, especially with the presence of the flame logo.
