These are original Eames shell chairs manufactured by Herman Miller, dating back to the 1970s or very early 1980s. They have the DAT (Desk Armchair Tilt) base, which can be adjusted in height and tilt angle. They're also on their original castors.The shells have a CPI stamp on them, which means they were made between 1974 and 1982. The chairs are in original condition, which means there are imperfections.
That said, they're very presentable indeed for practical and well-used chairs that are around 40 odd years old. There is wear and light staining to the fabric, but no major tears, burns or holes.The fabric and underneath foam latex rubber has sagged in places. The fibreglass shells are generally in excellent condition. Around a couple of shock-mounts, there is a little damage, but the screws and shock-mounts still attach perfectly well. The aluminium contract bases have various imperfections, but still polish up beautifully and are perfectly in keeping with their age. If you'd like new or immaculate chairs, these aren't going to be for you. However, they will appeal to those who want genuinely rare and characterful chairs, in original and still very presentable condition. Please have a good look at the photos. I can always provide more if desired. I'm also happy to post to Europe, but won't be able to find a courier myself for Asia or elsewhere in the world.
