Found some old wingback chairs - do they have any value?

I bought these a while ago, and my mom texted me saying she saw a pair just like mine sell on eBay for a bit of money. So I thought I'd so some research - and havn't found anything. There are tags on the chairs but just info on how they were made, nothing for a brand name. Plus there are some scartch marks from a cat, so there not in mint condition either. Take a look, do these have any value?

RE: Found some old wingback chairs - do they have any value?

Those are what my family affectionately calls 'Elvis' chairs--anything that's evocative of blue suede, and that flea-market staple, the Elvis portrait on velvet. :)

If you search eBay for 'cane wingback chair,' you'll find a couple of examples listed for $250-$550/OBO. An advanced search on completed listings shows that they've been there awhile.
