Sources for a Base for Vintage Shell Chair?

Q: I picked up this chair (larger photo below) at the flea market and it's a no name with no markings. The base is ok, but I'd prefer one that I wasn't going to stub my toe on constantly. A wooden dowel base like the Eames side chairs would be wonderful. I've trolled the internet and ebay looking for some affordable ones but have come up empty handed. Any ideas where I could get a base for this chair?
