Hi,

Yes I see them. These are ebonIzed Windsor style chairs? First made in the 1950s. These were a modern take on the style. These would sell for $200-300 each. The style of thes e don't seem consistent vwit Dux.

Here is a link a vintage set of four being offered for $1500.

Hi,

Yes I did see "made in Sweden" this is for export, as it is in English, there is no indication of a maker. There are 1000s of pieces stamped " made in Sweden". I have found other examples of the same style chair with the stamp "made in Sweden". Here is a link to some 1950s Swedish chairs.

Unless there is a signature or label, all I can go by is "Made in Sweden"

Thank you,

Wayne
