Early 19th c. Austrian Carved Santos Figure St. Joseph Baby Jesus

Hand carved and painted wooden Santos figure from the early 19th century circa 1825. I believe it to be St. Joseph and the Christ child and originates from Austria. The figure is naively carved and has layers of polychrome paint. But what is sooo special is the handmade robe. A piece of tapestry has been lovingly made into a "royal robe" embellished with metal fringe, imitation pearls, and a religious medal. Someone made this with adoration of the heart as a special remembrance. The Santos measures 6.25" high and 2.5" wide. A wonderful piece to add to or start a collection.
