I have 2 of these chairs, the pads are original. I have had them for 50 years, they were in a doctor's office for years until he retired.
Flip them over and see if you can find any markings under the seat, either with paint or etched in.
You must know who the manufacturer is. On your chair it is probably on the back or on the bottom.
Name should be on bottom of seat or on one of the legs
The only thing on the underside of the chair is the picture I posted with a paper I'd that isn't very readable.
How do I find out the fair market value for my vintage furniture?

Go to "Fair Market Value of Vintage Furniture" lot of info & picture there, good luck.
When buying antique furniture, the price is always higher than when you sell it to an antique dealer. We just sold 7 antique items and didn't get anywhere near what we had originally paid for them.
Dawn, go to the Montgomery Street Antique Mall and walk around for a few hours. You will find things similar to yours, plus the people who have stores there are very helpful. Take photos of your vintage furniture and see if you can get some help. They are really, really, nice there. I've done that a number of times.
My mother passed away and I have three sets of her vintage chairs. I would like to know what they are worth if I was going to resell them.
You will have to turn the chair over and possibly remove the cushions to see if there are markings. Without markings, it will be difficult to identify the manufacturer and determine its value.
