I saw these chairs at a major retailer, but they were significantly more money and well out of my price range. These chairs are an excellent reproduction of those "famous maker" chairs and look great in my apartment. The only complaint I would have is that the pairs do not seem to be the same color. I ordered four chairs (two sets of two) and two of the chairs are a different silver tone than the other set. The color difference is not noticeable in dim light, but is quite apparent in bright light. I attributed this to the glazes used. When I get a chance, I plan to re-paint all of the chairs so they are all the same color. Although this may seem annoying, doing this is still cheaper than paying triple the price at the "famous maker"'s store. Other than that, the chairs are sturdy and great. I recommend them!
