Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,
My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.
Your antique Victorian closed arm chairs would have been produced in the Rococo Revival Style which is highlighted by the heavy carved roses at the apex of the chairs. From the photos the chairs appear to have a walnut frame with needlepoint seats displaying a tandem of French couples in historical garb in the seat backs surrounded by roses.
In excellent condition your Victorian Rococo Revival style arm chairs would have a replacement value of 2000-2200USD for the pair.
If there are any damages to the chairs, including any structural images to the frames or any cosmetic damage to the needlepoint, this would detract from the insurance value presented.
I hope this information was helpful to you today.
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.
Thank You,
Frank
Please let me know if you have any difficulties with our rating system.
