This is a fabulous vintage DSR chair and in such a wonderful color of elephant hide grey. Such a sculptural chair! We have combined this base and shell. The shell originally on this base was destroyed, and the original base on the shell was destroyed as well. The shell is circa 1976 and has the great look to the fiberglass that only a vintage DSR can have. The base is galvanized and has a great old patina. We believe it to be older than the shell. The base also has all new feet. What a classic and handsome mid-century modern icon to own.
