Hello,My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. Thank you for these pictures.Please use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures of the construction
of one of the chairs. These are Windsor chairs with spindle and splat backs and rush seats,
but these were made in the 1780's all the way up to 1925. The construction will help me a bit with the dating
of the chairs and therefore the value as well.
Thank you so much for the extra photos. These chairs are American 20th century (circa 1920-40, yes, they even still make these today)
Windsor brace-back, slat and spindle chairs with rush seats. The numbers on the bottom indicate that they were made in a factory as these are
numbers for each part. The little bump in the back is the 'brace-back', a varied form of the Windsor chair that helped add stability. The set of chairs you have are valued at $100 each for the dining chair and $200 each for the arm chairs. I am going to add photos of 1780 Windsors (all I could find was a rocker, but same idea) so you can look at the arms and see that period chairs wither had 'knuckle' ends or had very thin planks of wood. Then look again at your chairs. You have very crisp-edged, thick planks of wood used and a serpentine arm. Also, the construction looks to be with screws and glue where older ones were pegs and tiny nail heads. The easiest tell is the condition of the rush, which looks original and the paint, which also looks original. If the chairs were any older than 1920, there would be more wear in common areas like this.
Here is a great article on the history of the Windsor;
