I don't know much about them so I was wondering if someone can tell me if this chair looks like knock off or original Breuer Cesca chair?

Thanks

And I found another set made by Gavina ,private sale for 20 each.
One above looks like replica but Gavina one could be real

Theses are replicas. The originals have backs with rounded corners and thinner frames. If you love them use them and forget about them being originals.

Everything (almost) you ever wanted to know about the Cesca chair: http://www.nytimes.com/1991/02/07/garden/the-many-lives-of-a-very-common-chair.html

It has all details that authentic chair should have,no bend in tubing,no seam between tube and cap etc. And it is about 55 years old but looks fresh and young :)

Grover any idea for my kitchen ? http://www.houzz.com/discussions/940445/Help-me-decorate-this-kitchen-eat-in-area

Yeah, top one was definitely a reproduction, but the second set you found look just like the genuine article (my parents have 6 of them)
