Raw Umber Herman Miller Vintage Original Eames DSW Dining Side Shell Chair
Raw Umber Herman Miller Vintage Original Eames DSW Dining Side Shell Chair. An excellent vintage, original Eames side shell chair for Herman Miller looks fantastic in rather rare raw umber coupled with its used, walnut, DSW dowel base. Raw umber side shells are a highly coveted colour for the Eames shell chairs and this version is in excellent vintage condition. The Eames shells require little introduction with prototypes beginning in the 1940s, production began in 1950. Arm shells were the first to be produced and the side shells were introduced in 1952/1953. Raw umber was a later colour offered in the Eames shell series but has proven to be a very sought-after colour amongst collectors. As a highly coveted colour, this shell is a fantastic example to own.
The chair does show some natural signs of wear which may be a little more than similar shells of its era with some deeper scuffs present, price does reflect this and further pictures are available upon request. The C with star indicates this shell originates from Herman Millers Cincinnati factory.
Eames shells are a highly collectable piece. Of course, as with anything, their age and condition are the primary factors influencing the investment value of them and this is coupled with the colour and originality of the chair. As an excellent example of a raw umber side chair, this is a good investment piece. Listing and template services provided by inkFrog.
