Hi Kathryn,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
If you'd like for your appraisal to include dimensions, which is customary, please forward in the comments section - at your convenience - the height, width, depth and I'll update this ASAP.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A late Victorian / Aesthetic Movement carved and velvet-upholstered platform rocker and footstool
American, late 19th Century
Shaped crest with outset shaped "ears" over a part-upholstered back, flat arms raised on shaped supports, straight seat rail, all raised on platform rocker. Stool of rectangular form, over-the-frame upholstered, on ball feet (possibly by association)
CONDITION: appears to be in very good condition; upholstery probably a later replacement
PROVENANCE: inherited from uncle, an antique dealer
$300-500 for both together*
