I received those photos last evening Warren, thank you.

Your tapestry arm chair would have been done in the Louis XIV style during a revival period in the 19th century. The gilded chair looks to date circa 1870's.The intricately carved chair looks to be composed of mahogany and in good to excellent condition would have a fair market or resale value of between 1500-2000USD.

In a brick and mortar antique shop you may find the chair valued at closer to 3,000USD.

From the photos, this piece looks to be in great shape, but any damage unseen in the photos would detract from the resale value.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.

Thank You,

Frank
