Hi Dean,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
From the photos, it looks as though you have a pair of these chairs; if I'm wrong about the number please let me know and I'll correct this appraisal ASAP. Also, if you'd like me to include dimensions, please forward the height, width and depth.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A pair of Baroque style turned and upholstered walnut armchairs
late 19th/early 20th Century
With pierced arching crest, barley-twist sides flanking an upholstered seat panel, part-upholstered arms with lions-head terminals on barley twist supports, over-the-rail upholstered seats, all raised on inverted trumpet form legs joined by a barley-twist H-stretcher.
[DIMENSIONS}
