Civil War Era Parlor Chairs

Two upholstered carved wooden parlor chairs from the Civil War era.

I'm guessing they are Walnut. The one on the left with arms is for a man.

The chair below has a wide seat and partial sides which are also quite wide. It is meant to hold hoop skirts of a woman.

If you know more about these chairs please post a comment here.
