I have an old photo
that has two chairs in it; I'd like to know what you call this kind of chair.

In the background of this photo, taken in the US at an estate in approximately 1915-1920, are two chairs. I'd like to know how to describe these chairs. The eventual goal is to get similar chairs so if you know of a source, that would also be welcome information.
The estate was full of antiquities as well as contemporary versions of antiquities. The area in which the chairs are pictured was inspired by Roman, Greek and Indo-Persian design.
