This is a carved wood religious figure. Book or Bible held in crook of the right arm, while clutching a pendant with the right hand. Perhaps a Sacred Heart Pendant? Possible resemblance to Jesus Christ, St Peter, St Francis, St Francis Xavier?
Appearance vintage. Weathered paint/patina with some cracking in the wood due to the material drying out. Approximately 17 inches tall
Our appraisal range for this type of statue would range $2000-$4000 retail. Based on the fact it seems to be fairly old. Perhaps as old as the 1700’s? An oddity, that will not easily be found. Worth is subjective, covering a range that is dependent on condition, availability, current market trends, and buyer motivation.
The base (the underside) of this particular piece shows signs of minor decay or insect damage. Thus lowering its value somewhat. It is still a prime collectable piece.
