I don't know if they're exactly the Claude model, but I have a pair of Grenson chelseas in brown made to Masterpiece grade from the first Bennie's sale that look like the photo on that site. I think they look more like EG Newmarkets than C&Js because they're less "bulbous" through the vamp than the C&J 337 last. They're probably my favorite pair of shoes because the last shape is so nice, they're very comfortable, and they go with everything from jeans to suits. If you can find a pair, I'd definitely recommend them.
