    I have 2 arm chairs (like the one pictured) a loveseat, and 2 armless chairs I inherited from my grandmother. She bought them from an antique dealer in 1955 in Evreux, France. That's about all I know about them. I believe they are Louis XV in style. Can anyone enlighten me more? They have been re-upholstered.

      Napoleon III period, mid to late 19th century, revival of previous 18th century styles.

      Hi, Bisou. :-)

      Beautiful.

      If those casters are original to the chair, those alone would make it 19th century, because the furniture caster hadn't been invented until 1876:

      Thanks! Are they valuable? I want to know if I should pay for an appraisal...

      Without a person or appraisal guy seeing the piece in person an appraisal from that person is no good. Since these pieces were made in the 50's to 1960's by many makers, it is impossible to say what date the piece is.
