Product Description

The rarest find in the Eames series, this all original, vintage seafoam rope-edge Eames PAW swivel dining arm chair for Zenith is the collector’s piece to have! The sheer rarity of the dowel base is unparalleled; the dowel base with the addition of the Seng swivel section, is even rarer still!

The very limited time-frame for the dowel base meant they only saw the first generations of the Eames shells before being discontinued which is what makes them exceptional collector’s pieces. The elegant construction, however, has remained a firm favourite with consumers even today, which has prompted Herman Miller and Vitra to re-introduce the bases.

It is genuinely remarkable how, for such a short time that the dowel base was available for, it has become so iconic, but this is what helped propel the Eames chairs into many homes, schools, offices, churches and so on throughout the US and the UK and European market.

Individual Characteristics

The original zenith shell is in a good vintage condition. The seafoam shell has been gel coated in its past which has given it a slightly golden hue but the finish is still rather captivating.

The label, the large mounts and the rope edging all indicate this is a first generation Zenith arm shell.

The ‘Seng’ stamp on the underside of the base confirms its authenticity. The base is slightly more aged in that the swivel is a little loose, but it is still a great original base to own!
