My feeing is they are knock...
My feeing is they are knock offs. I have never seen those feet and the welds appear a little heavy. Also is that ultra suede bikini cover? Of course I could be wrong.

Looks like Vitra
The cover could be aftermarket.

I've never seen an Eames gold-toned wire chair...let alone one with mauve suede cloth bikini's. They are probably Chinese...but I could be drunk. I would not want them.


But maybe I'm wrong.
