What does this mean?

This is a set of late 19th century, French limed oak wood Louis style chairs with cabriole legs and stretcher bars at the base. Liming is the process in which the wood is surface treated to appear white washed. The seats and backs are upholstered in a burnt orange/scarlet velvet type textile, although they are possibly horsehair stuffed, the upholstery appears to have been replaced sometime in the Mid 20th century. The estimate is for all 11 chairs together and is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables.

Please add well-lit clear images of the underside of a chair and any hardware (nailheads/screws) so I can see the joinery of the leg to seat frame.
