Cadmium Green Set (4) Herman Miller Original Eames DSW Side Shell Chair
An example of a set of vibrant, Original Herman Miller Cadmium Green Eames fibreglass shell dining chairs on a used, newer, black DSW dowel base. This bold combination of a green shell on a black wood base will add a punch of colour to your interior.
The Eames shell series chairs do not need any introduction. 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 fibreglass chairs were so versatile and so modern that they only increase in popularity as the years go by.
Fibreglass originals always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibres in the shell itself. Upholstered versions were introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
With its bold colour, this chair would make a great statement piece for your chosen location. This rarely used piece is in good used condition, with some minor usage marks. The black DSW base is in excellent condition and is stable and functional. Further images are available upon request.
The black underside stamp suggests that the shell was manufactured between 1989-1999.
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. This great example of this rather rare colour will prove to be a good investment piece.
