Here is the closest design-similar I could find for you. tinyurl.com/yylb5s5t.

However, yours appear to be maple with some difference in details. (Armless Russel Wrights and/or Young American chairs seem to average around $300 apiece in excellent condition; see tinyurl.com/yxt9q6o6 for even higher.) tinyurl.com/yxt9q6o6

These are expensive chairs and are worth at least $250 each.

I do not feel that you can judge the value of Conant Ball furniture by the sold price of another similar style because style in high quality furniture is probably one of the most important things in the value of the items.

This set is for sale on eBay (and has been for a long time) but it is not the same style and maybe not the same condition so, in actuality, it has no relevance to your chairs.

I did notice that I'm seeing a much larger quantity of Conant Ball chairs listed for sale than I can remember seeing in past research.
Maybe if is a sign of the times but style is what people search for you need a very good description of your chairs and several very good (uncluttered) pictures of your chairs if you wish to ask for a high price. Condition is most important and needs to be accurate and, to be honest, I do not think you will find very many pieces that are in 'mint' condition. Mint is supposed to be in 'new' condition and most people are skeptical when they see 'mint' condition listed by a seller.

Your area is important as most sellers are listing their pieces as 'local pick up' and/or freight shipping. Quality furniture may sell in your area for high prices but could very easily not sell at all in another area (some areas do not look at brand names when they buy).

I believe if you want top dollar for your chairs you will need an official appraisal to prove there true value.
There are free appraisal sites online and some that charge $19-$35 but a free appraisal would be a good start. You can submit to several sites but you will need pictures of both chairs (or ask about just one). Here are some links to check out but you can also search for your own.

Sorry that you feel that way about free sites when someone has a valuable item.
Free is free and suggestions about price is what you were asking for.

Thanks for posting back the sold value! That is a nice tidy sum! Good to know that this style of chairs has held its value. Just for my notes, are you in the US? Was it an auction house auction? I don't see it on US or UK eBay.
