An original 2nd generation zenith Eames Greige arm shell in amazing condition is sat proudly on its original, rare, DAT tilt action base, making a perfect collectors chair. Greige was one of the first colours these iconic shells produced and this particular one looks amazing on this spectacular base!
Zenith Plastics was the first factory to produce the Eames’s famed shell chairs. The arm shell was the first to be produced, in 1950, and the side variant was offered as an option in 1952/53. Herman Miller aided in the production of the shells by offering financial assistance to help produce these shells.
The shell is in excellent vintage condition. The shell is unmarked with no chips or cracks and the colour untainted.
The base is in good vintage condition with only natural wear present.
The shell has two larger shock mounts on the front of the shell which indicates that it is a second-generation zenith. This shell also sits on an original birch wood rocker.
