Yes, that's a pair of genuine Thonet bentwood chairs!! :) I was so excited after I found these beauties I could hardly wait to get home and start doing some research.
Look at those curves!
Based on the style of the inner paper tag, these chairs were made between 1888 and 1922. Super cool!
I'm torn if I want to sell them or keep them for myself. My friend joked that I'm going to be on a TV show for hording in 20 years if I keep everything I find. He's probably right. But but.. they are soooooo cute!
