Is this a flea market treasure? Eames/ furniture novice here.

Picked this set of 4 chairs for $25 at a local flea market in Royal Oak, MI. Wondering if someone could tell me if they're Eames? They're old school lunch chairs from Saginaw. Still need to be cleaned- pardon the dirt.


Any info would be appreciated!


Thx

They are not Eames. There are tons of photos of Eames shell chairs online so it will be easy to compare yours to authentic ones and spot the differences. Theirs is one of the most copied chairs of that era because they were so practical for schools and other institutions.

As to whether yours are a flea market treasure: yes, if you were hoping to get a set of colorful mid-century era chairs for your kitchen for dirt cheap. If you were looking for a set of authentic Eames chairs for dirt cheap, then no.
