Eames for Herman Miller Eiffel Tower Base Arm Chair. This is a lovely Zenith Plastics 2nd Generation beige fiberglass arm shell on its original eiffel tower base. All 4 of the large shock mounts, a telltale sign that this is an early production, are original and near perfect. Also, as typical of these shells from the early 1950s, the original paper label has fallen off.

From the following chart http://www.flickr.com/photos/xxno/5653622479/sizes/l/in/photostream/

it looks like the spec color is light ochre. It's almost like a mix between greige and beige - mostly warm undertones but it will fit along very nicely in any setting. The shell is on the original black eiffel tower base with all four glides intact. This original rare black base shows very well with only a minimal amount of chipping. I can't definitely say that the boot glides are the original glides because it looks like one has been replaced (it appears ever so lightly whiter than the others); also, the nylon glides were first introduced in 1957 and the large shockmounts on this shell indicate that this chair pre-dates 1957, so they are most likely replacements.

The fiberglass is in excellent condition with its original finish. There are no cracks. There is a very small amount of wear on the chairs back left side most likely due to some wall rubbing (please see the last photo).

I am happy to provide more photos on request.
