For your consideration is one (1) uber rare, all-original EAMES ROPE EDGE fiberglass arm chair on the ever-elusive, vintage swivel dowel base.
The swivel dowel base was only in production for a couple of months before being discontinued and replaced by the more popular solid steel tubular X-base on which subsequent rope edge armshells were mounted.
Gorgeous chair with beautiful swirly fiberglass threads very visible, as you can see. The color is either parchment or ochre.

Exhibits age-appropriate wear for a chair that's six decades old, namely, surface soiling and rust/oxidation on the base, a slight bend on one metal rod, and a stress mark on the bottom left of the armshell, as depicted. It doesn't appear to swivel 360 degrees and gets stuck on one of the mounts (this can likely be fixed by raising the swivel disc of the base by a centimeter or so, but we don't want to touch it as we prefer to sell vintage items exactly as found and acquired). These are already reflected in the price, since original rope edge swivel dowel chairs routinely go for $3K-$4K on other sites.
The armshell has all the features of early rope edge chairs, like the large hockey puck shock mounts, slightly thicker edge, and checkerboard label.
Don't miss your chance to own this classic Eames chair, an integral piece for the serious mid century modern collector, and definitely a great investment that will only appreciate further in value in years to come.
Final sale, no refunds or exchanges, so please ask any and all questions and examine all photos prior to purchase. If you need more photos of anything in particular, please don't hesitate to ask.
Thanks for looking!
