The Eames shells require little introduction with prototypes beginning in the 1940s, production began in 1950. Arm shells were the first to be produced and the side shells were introduced in 1952/1953. The side shell is in good condition for its age with only some light marking expected with age. The updated fabric is lifting slightly, price does reflect this.The S stamp signifies the shell originates from the Summit Herman Miller factory. The Eames shells are a great investment piece, but many factors affect how valuable they are. The origin of the shell, its age and even the colour can have an effect on its value. The great combination of the upholstery and shell on this particular chair aids with its investment value. Listing and template services provided by inkFrog.
