I found two caned-seat chairs. I'm nor sure if they are true "antiques'. The one one on the left is in pretty good shape. The one on the right, although the caning is good, the frame had some problems. The top front corner of the seat looks as if it's pulling apart and underneath on that side towards the back, something is broken - looks like the frame that holds the caning.  Any idea as to age? What would be a reasonable price to ask if I put them up for sale as a pair?

19th C spindle side chairs, always cute, very common, old price was 125-150ea, now 1/2 of that in that condition in a shop.

I just stole some lovely similar French chairs at auction for $14 ea in mint shape:

Thanks for the info, now I know what to call them. I had the one that isn't damaged out this summer at my yard sale for $20. I still have it. Maybe it's my location, but people around here aren't much into that style of furniture.

Or anywhere it seems. Those are great painting candidates and then they get attention. Use Chalk Paint® and it can easily be stripped off when taste returns to style in the future.
