Customer Question
Hello,I have a set of...
Hello,I have a set of four chairs supposedly Louis XV but I am not sure about this. My family has owned them since the 1940s. They are all identical and pretty much in the same condition.
What style are they? About how old could they be? Country of origin? Market value of each one?
Thank you
