Unknown chair maker or era

Looking for help in identifying this chair and period, and if possible approximate value:) I call it "The birth of Venus/Aphrodite," reminds me of Rossetti's Astarte Syriaca - William Morris's Jane Burden-Morris.

Thanks for your time
Deb

Hmmm...no way to tell the maker...it's late Victorian and likely from a lodge or perhaps a bank...or maybe even a stately home as an entry piece.

Stately home or lodge I can see, but with the nude figures on the stiles and legs I can not see the chair being from a bank.
Do you know what makers were carving chairs in the late 1800-1900.
