Some used. original, vintage Eames Herman Miller tan fiberglass dining side shell chairs, complete with some gorgeous used, newer, walnut wood DSW 'dowel' bases. The gorgeous creamy tan compliments well with the chocolate walnut dowel base, and this combination will look fantastic with a glass top table.
The Eames shell series chairs really don’t 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 versions were introduced by Herman Miller a little later using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
These gorgeous tan chairs are a vintage classic- It does feature aged marks and a couple of aged scratches- further images are available upon request. The dowel base will provide excellent stability. The overall chair's condition is fantastic despite its vintage age.
The newer, replacement Herman Miller walnut DSW base is in good used condition.
The ‘C’ stamp signifies that is produced around 1965-1978 and is of a Later Cincinnati Milacron Herman Miller Production.
