Hi Delia:
Please let me know if you agree that these are very similar to the chair above. Could it be Spanish? It almost seems like a clone, a more valuable clone. I came across it on my favorite window-shopping site.
Thank you,

Hi Rhonda,
Thanks for the links. Remember 1stdibs is a retail website so their prices are several times higher than the fair-market prices we give at Mearto.
I can see why you might think that everything about this chair says Regency to me, though that is a very primitive flat arm...
Here are a few chairs with comparable elements I found on 1stdibs:

As a single chair with fairly plain elements I think $250-350 is fair
