Jacobean revival, possibly 1880s but could be later. The simplicity of the back makes me think it is later -- 1910-1920s. Earlier ones usually had carved crest rails.

Is the cane hand-woven or is it pressed? Show us a close-up of the edge of the cane.

It is Pressed Cane. It also seams that the runners are 2 piece length wise.

I agree completely with the age and style. Can you tell if the seat were leather or upholstery? I can't tell by the picture. Can you elaborate about the seat since the picture does not give a lot of detail. Look under it and relay what you see, or if possible snap another picture of it.

All that is left on the chair is the stuffing and under covering. I can tell you all that the spring system is 4 separate coil type springs. One in each section of the chair if it was divided into 4 sections. Now another question is, What would this chair be worth and does anyone have any links to pictures of what it looked like new?

So can anyone give an estimated value of this chair as is & or fixed?

Lance, the value is so dependent on your location that it is hard for one of us to give a value. I would say that it has a lot of style, which gives you an advantage. If you can do the work yourself, it would sell much more quicklly and at a much better price if you replace the cane, freshen up or refinish the wood, and reupholster the seat in a neutral fabric.
