Hi All,

Thanks first of all to DA to letting me join in! I've come across some Saarinen Tulip chairs. After a lot of digging, I can't work out if they're originals or not. would anyone be able to help?

Many thanks,

No. Besides for the shape, all chairs have Alcoa, BR50 or BR51 on the base. The bottoms don't look like that. Neither does the spot under the cushion.

Thanks for your feedback. After inspection and further research, they're not! A big 'made in China' stamp on the bottom gave it away.
