I have a question regarding a chair. It's a light orange

Customer Question

Hi, I have a question regarding a chair. It's a light orange armed shell fiberglass chair. It's light orange and has 4 metal legs that come down directly from the base of the chair It was purchased between 1956-1964. I can't find a label on the underside unless it had fallen off. Is there any other way to tell if this is an Eames chair or a reproduction? If I need to take it for an appraisal, were would I go. I live in Milwaukee WI.
Thank you for your help.

This is an Eames style molded fiberglass chair. The genuine ones were designed by Eames made by Herman Miller and have a brand mark or stamp right in the surface of the chair like a hallmark. Check the bottom for this. Please let me know if you see this.
