My wife is about to make her purchase on these as pictured. I am wondering if these are authentic. Can anyone tell if there is anything obvious wrong from these limited pictures?

There is indeed something wrong with your pictures - they are nonexistent. Please try again.

@jc966 Your pictures are too limited as in non existent. Please repost them. They must not be bigger than 2 MB.

There should be a branded stamp under the seat plus a carpenter numeral elsewhere underneath.  Totally refurbished obviously, as are mine which have been re-caned minimum twice.  Mine have 19 cane crosses along the front vs 23 or so on the one in the picture and about the same number of canes going across except no crosses - just straight.

There is no way you'll find a cheap version of those with the elements that you see in this picture. Look at how the backrest is connected to the armrests, those cuts are a considerable amount of work. The cane might be redone but whoever did that did a really good job. Look for cracks in the wood, especially in the connection between the backrest and the back legs. If you find any crack there, it does not mean you should not buy them, but maybe they'll make you a better price. Amazing purchase by the way, your wife must have some really good taste.

But I would be interested in seeing the makers mark. Because I‘d go for 50s, rather than 60s.

Okay, it’s 60s. 😅 But also looks good.
