Do you know what style this antique chair is?

This is an x-post from the Decorating forum, where they suggested I try over here. Thanks for any help you can provide. I want to refresh the finish and re-upholster it, and would like to search for appropriate fabrics, although I have seen similar done in a simple linen.

Except for lacking the 'mouton' legs and feet, it's very similar to some 'os de mouton' chairs I've seen online. I know I've seen this style - is it one of the Louis? Its dimensions are - Depth is 25"; it's 25" wide along front of chair; seat is 18" from floor.






It's a bit reminiscent of this one posted at Cote de Texas recently, to the right of the fireplace.

Well, I'd be inclined to call it Jacobean Revival.

Thank-you, Chibimimi!

I had seen several in the various Louis styles that were close, but when I looked up images for Jacobean Revival, I came up with this one linked below, which is the closest I have seen.

You help is very much appreciated!
