Your chairs are in the Federal Revival Style. Federal Revival pieces are reproductions of the original American furniture originally produced from 1780-1825. This style first became popular after the first Centennial of the American Revolution in 1876, but pieces like this were made right up until World War Two (1939). At that time interest and demand for original Colonial & Federal furnishings was so great it outstripped supply. Large manufacturers to begin production of pieces in the Colonial style from the Jacobean to early Georgian periods.

 

Most American makers produced furniture in this style, most of it unmarked, values for it depend a great deal on the quality of construction and how close they follow the designs of the originals. Currently comparable chairs by unknown makers sell at auction for under $50.00 each.
