Have you turned one upside down to look for a tag?

A photo of the bottom and of any tag would be of great help.

I think they were purchased at Walter E smith.
Expert:  Rarewares replied 1 month ago.

These are vintage Queen Anne dining chairs that would date to

about 1960 to 1980 if purchased at Walter E Smithe Furniture.

They were in business since 1945, but this style became popular

again in the 60's through 80's. Each chair has a current value of $75 to $100 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling on your own are https://marketplace.apartmenttherapy.com/, www.loveseat.com (in CA), Layerhome.com, Pamono.com, Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local),
Chairish.com, Ioffer.com, Furnishly.com, Deconet.com, Lushpad, Krrb.com, and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
They do all of the work and you get a check 14 to 45 days after the sale minus their 15% to 25% (negotiable!) commission.
