Eames Zenith Ochre Butterscotch Post Rope Edge Arm Chair Herman Miller X-base:
For your consideration is one (1) vintage original EAMES Zenith fiberglass armchair. Gorgeous and relatively rare golden hue color.
I believe the color is a faded or light ochre, as it's darker than the classic parchment and has a golden/butterscotch/yellowish tint. Please see comparison photos featuring this ochre chair alongside another Zenith chair we have in parchment (which is available for sale in a separate listing) so you can see the differences in color. In any case, it's a lovely shade and I'll leave it to the buyer make their own determination regarding official color.
Early production chair (early 1950s) that immediately followed the 1st year rope edge Zenith chairs while still retaining the large mounts. Heavier than the later fiberglass arm chairs with thicker edges.
Mounted on original black X-base sans glides.
This chair is in great vintage condition and exhibits standard age-appropriate wear, notably some surface dirt, superficial scratches, typical fading and edge wear. The X-base has typical rust and oxidation characteristic of a base that's about 60 years old. There are no cracks or integral damage to the armshell. A great chair overall.These large shock mount Zenith shells are becoming increasingly rare, especially in this color.Final sale, no refunds or exchanges, so please ask any and all questions and examine all photos prior to purchase. If you need additional pics of anything that isn't already depicted, feel free to ask. Photos were taken in various lighting conditions, so you can see how the color changes depending on lighting.
