A very nice pair of vintage original Herman Miller side shell tops in Ochre sitting on a light coloured DSW dowel bases which really compliment the visual appeal. The ochre colour, also often called buttermilk, is a really warm colour and very desirable.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.
In a lovely vintage original condition. Of course 50+ year old shells have a patina expected with age but there are no cracks but some have slight surface markings. Chairs sit on a newer used DSW dowel base in light stained oak.The circled S logo denotes its origin as the Summit Plastics factory.
