Thanks for your appraisal and a little more information on how old the chairs are as I have 2.

Thanks, James, I've changed the description and value now that it's a pair and not just the one.
As for the dating, it's impossible to know precisely when these were made unless they are marked but they are - stylistically - correct for chairs made in the late 19th or early 20th Century, typically that's anywhere from 1875 to 1925.
