:: This is an awesome first production 1949-1950 Eames / Zenith Herman Miller LAX chair with its original X silver base + original "Insulated domes of silence" feet glides. The fiberglass shell color is the highly collectible and oh-so-versatile color of elephant hide grey / gray and the chair features the special feature of rope edge.

:: We believe this chair to be all original with all original parts -- the fiberglass shell is in excellent condition with no cracks or issues and has all kinds of beautiful + playful swirls of the fiberglass that showcase the beginning days of the company's experimentation, and the Zenith checkerboard sticker fully intact on the bottom of the chair.

:: Conditional notes: Fiberglass is beautifully fibrous and there are no issues with the color or anything -- very beautiful nearly mint condition, appears very lightly used -- just some light rust + signs of use on the base, and the chair does have a very slight tilt to one side (one leg does not mount perfectly on the ground).

:: Measurements: seat width is 18", arm to arm is 25", height from the floor to chair bottom is 16" + floor to the very top of the chair measures approx. 29".

:: Assembly may be required once the chair is received.

:: Vintage Persian rug in photographs is also for sale:

:: More photographs (just ask if you'd like to see anything specific!) and international shipping options available upon request.
