Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

In order to appraise these, I'd need an overall photograph, and a close-up of the detail you mention.

Thank you.

This is an American Victorian parlor set in the Eastlake style.

Ears of corn as a carving motif came into popularity with the Federal style, around 1800, but this set would date to the later 19th century.

Is this a settee and two chairs? Or some other configuration?
