This is a genuine salmon Eames original side shell chair for Herman Miller which looks amazing on its used dark wood DSW base. Many shells that are defined as salmon are faded orange shells but this particular shell is actually finished in salmon, why, because we have multiple of them all the same colour.
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.
Fiberglass originals always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibers in the shell itself. Upholstered version were introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
The shell has a small repair but it has been professionally done. Price does reflect this. It is otherwise in good condition with its still vibrant colour.
The ‘C’ with the star logo indicates this shell was produced at Herman Miller’s Cincinnati factory.
