British Colonial Chair Value?

A vintage chair with a woven seat back.I acquired this chair recently, and the only thing I know about it, is that is used to have a tag that said, "Handcrafted in the Philippines." I'd love even a ballpark range of its value. It looks well made and is in excellent condition.

These are asking $580 for the pair. Yours looks more expensive than one of the above. www.etsy.com/.../vintage-rattan-peacock-style-fan...

Beautiful chair.
Sometimes chairs can be valuable but it usually takes an 'expert/appraiser' who knows all about unbranded furniture to be able to identify which is good and which is just 'nice'.

I think your chair is made of bamboo (but check that it is not Faux Bamboo), in colonial style Mid Century Modern chair www.ebay.com/.../274832077314, www.etsy.com/.../mid-century-bamboo-and-cane-chair....

Your chair has a high, semicircular back forming a single upholstered piece with the wings or arms. These chairs are called Barrel Chair or Barrel Back Chair.
Also, your chair has a wicker back. Caning is a method of weaving furniture's parts. In common use, "cane" may refer to any plant with a long, thin stem. www.ebay.com/.../154508153310

So, you have Colonial Mid Century Modern Bamboo Caned Barrel Back Chair Made in the Philippines.
The price about $300-400 www.ebay.com/.../274832077314
