Product Description

This gorgeous, vintage original light ochre Eames side shell for Herman Miller on its new, used DSW base really is a fantastic version of the iconic shell chair. The distinctive colour has not been marred by time and sat on the light oak DSW base this chair works perfectly as a living or dining chair.

The shells were initially produced in 4 colours but with their success, more colours were made available. Light ochre, especially like this excellent example, was introduced and proved to also be a success. Once Herman Miller took complete control of the production process, more colours were made available thus helping to establish the success the Eames shell chairs saw.

Individual Characteristics

The shell is in fantastic vintage condition with no chips or dents, though there is a small bit of ‘bobbling’ on the seat in one area – the price does reflect this. The colour displays little to no fading.

Investment Details

Eames shells vary in terms of investment value due to so many factors. The age, origin and colour of the shell coupled with its condition are key aspects along with the originality of the base the shell is upon. This particular shell is a good vintage example to use, and though it is a little more aged, it should still prove to be a reliable and sturdy companion.
