Product Description

An extremely rare find. A fantastic example of an amazing vintage 1st Generation Zenith Eames arm shell in lemon yellow colour and on an original black DAX base. The chair has managed to retain a good colour considering its age. This is a great example of an all original 1st generation design icon.

The earliest shells from Zenith were, in some ways, the experimental phase in the shells’ production. The first generation rope-edged shells were only around for a couple of years before the mould was changed. After this, a multitude of embossed logos, labels and different sized shock mounts found their way under the shells until they found a standard format which was used by Summit Prime and Cincinnati Plastics.

Individual Characteristics

The shell has aged well, its colour has faded a little and there may be some slight shock mount bleeding, but it is otherwise a good example of a lightly aged 1st generation Eames arm shell. Further pictures are available and advised before purchase.

The original black DAX base displays a natural patina expected with age but is as sturdy as the day it was produced.

The rope edging and checkerboard label help indicates this is a first generation Zenith arm shell.
