Look what I found!

Do these chairs look familiar? They should.
It looks as if I've finally identified the make of the pair of chairs from the office. They didn't have any marks or tags and an I'd almost given up after a long, fruitless search of the internet. I couldn't find anything at all until this week, when not one, not two, but three sets came up on Craigslist.
They were manufactured by the Jasper Chair Company, which was founded in 1921 and still operates out of Jasper, Indiana. I perused their catalogue to see if they still had anything of interest, but they now just sell typically bland office furniture.
When I first took them home, I didn't think to look for the cushions, as the, for lack of a better term, "butt groove" led me to believe that there wasn't any. I'll have to check where they've run off to.
Does anyone else think that they look similar to the work of Hans Wegner? They're really beautiful, well-made chairs.
