Period for low-cost housing and furnishing designs adaptable to small housing units. This offered chair is from the very first Zenith production in 1949/1950.The very first produced Eames fiberglass chairs did contain the significant rare rope along the seats edge as well as the typical Zenith foil label. This chair is with the very first ever produced criss cross rocking base - which was changed in order to get more comfort in the area of the users legs - shortly after the first series of production. So very few of this early and exceptional beautiful rocking base remain until today. This almost 70 years old chair is in its exact original condition since its production in 1949/1950. It contains its Zenith foil label in exceptional preserved condition and is whit its original first edition criss cross rocking base.
The beautiful and homogenous parchment fiberglass shell is in a very nice vintage condition. It still contains its nice gloss and is free from any breaks or structural damages. A modest patina tells about the many years of this chairs life.Only one of the bases mounting plates (which holds the seat) seems to be rewelded at one point in the chairs life. Please refer to the pictures provided. This is an extraordinary example of American design history in an amazingly beautiful and all original condition.
