Antique Turn of the Century Carving of Unidentified Franciscan Saint

Title: Antique Turn of the Century Carving of Unidentified Franciscan Saint
Description: Up for sale is this lovely and truly old carving depicting a Franciscan saint. It is done in the classical style of carving characterized by the excellent symmetry and attention to detail. He is missing his left hand, a feature not uncommon for these older carvings, and detail on his face has been dulled over time. It is believed to be about one hundred years old as evident in his patina. Large portions of the base has been chipped off over time but this does not detract from the overall beauty of the carving.
Measurement: It measures 12 inches in height (including the base) and 5 inches across.
Condition: In Good Condition
Weight: approximately 260 grams
