Any ideas on this love seat?

I bought this love seat years ago. I cleaned it up, had it reupholstered and we have had it in our living room but I have decided to replace it. I have no idea what to ask for it, how to describe it (what "type"), etc. I can see where it had an oval label on the back which I am sure would have helped identify it. The inlay is beautiful and in great condition.

Another late Victorian lovely....but later than the gentleman's chair.
And properly it would be called a settee.

That face isn't Chinese, it's the Green Man. Looks 1910s-1920s to me
