This beautiful carving depicts a Saint holding a palm leaf – the sign of the martyrs. He is also holding a goblet, so I think the carving could depict Saint Norbert of Xanten.
The carving has much charisma. It is fine done and dark brown painted. The condition is very good. Some age cracks to the back and painting loss to report.
Provenance Germany about 1800.
Height: 24.8 inches.
