With early prototypes beginning in the late 1940s, 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. Fiberglass originals always have a base colour and gorgeous'visible' fibres in the shell itself.
Upholstered versions were introduced by Herman Miller a little later using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard. This used, parchment side shell is in great vintage condition, with subtle signs of usage. There may be some small scratches, and discolouration on the shell, which is expected with age. The light oak DSW dowel base is still very much sturdy and will provide excellent stability to the chair. Further images are available upon request.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.
