Hi !

A friend of mine show me this Elda Chair... (see the pictures below).

And i need you because i have some question :
Is it a real one or something like a chinese reproduction ?
On this one, it is synthetic leather, but i've never seen a Elda Chair with synthetic leather. It is always real leather or alcantara...

Can somebody tell me what it is ?

Thanks for your help

New leather?
Given the condition of the shell, it looks authentic, i would say it was reupholstered/recovered recently. The leather isn't distressed at all. I've never reproductions of these chairs.

I agree,
badly done reupholstery. just look at the seams... base looks vintage and real.

Yes, on the original Elda, there are "triple seams"... here, we only can see double seams (except under the central pad were i can see "triple seams").
