Any help identifying this fiberglass "panton-esque"

Anybody have any idea who designed or manufactured this fiberglass rocker?

We just call it the tooth chair. It's extremely comfortable.

I'm considering repairing some fraying on the back, bottom edges with Bondo, and perhaps having a coat of white baked on at Maaco, but I want to make sure I'm not altering some crazy, important Panton prototype or something before I do that. :P

Thanks!

I consider myself pretty knowledgeable about 60s and 70s design in general and plastics in particular, and I have never seen that chair before. It is definitely not in any of my reference books. I would say go ahead and apply the new finish and enjoy! :)

oh, my.
i've been censored. 'lady of ill repute'
funny.

i like an odd chair, on its own, and enjoyed.
i have way too many 'greatest hits'. i think that's swell and interesting.
it could be rare.
i picked up a lovely chair at a yard sale years ago.
tag was long gone.
eventually found out it is a rare warren mccarthur lounge.
never know...
