Carved in oak, obviously part of a creche or similar devotional display (see back which is flat, has a hole for mounting pin/post), we think this 6.75" tall figure is that of Mary, the Madonna. Very likely from a Nativity, or perhaps she is Mary Magdalen and the rest of the figure group would have included an expired Christ in Pieta form, with this Mary Magdalen looking on. If she were polychromed, we'd know from the color of her flowing robes. But as she is, we can't know. We only know that in display either alone of with a grouping of other hand carved figures, she is exquisite. The old oak is dense, heavy, must have been difficult to carve. She can stand on her own or be raised on a plinth as many of the old figures are. Some we've seen beautifully displayed raised on a wire post-mount. We offer her as she is and will let her next owner determine the rest.

Very good condition for age and type, she is missing one forearm, and parts of each of her feet that otherwise disappear beneath her gown. Our photos show her well, including the finish on the old carving. Carved in oak.
