Do you think this is an antique?  If so, how much do you think this would be worth?

Answer
called a savonarola chair.   need to see a clear and in focus picture of underneath showing wood, not leather.

it appears to be more modern and an import although similar ones were made in oak and birch and mahogany in the late 1800s-1915s.

i sold one like this last year from Mexico that was about the same for 75$, but it was missing some carving and was loose.
