Rare St Radegund polychrome plaster statue.
She is depicted as both queen and nun. She is holding an open book in her left hand, symbolising her faith in the Scriptures.
As the wife of King Chlothar I, Radegund became a queen at a very early age and became a penitent.
She left the court and retired to a convent in Poitiers.

I had never found a statue of her before. It is a rare find!

The paint has flaked in places (some small pieces could still fall). One finger missing under the book.
Stains and discolouration. Small chips. One larger chip at the back of the base.

St Radegonde is engraved on the base at the front.

First half of the 20th century.

Height: approx. 33 cm / 13.18 inches
Base: 10 x 8 cm / 3.93 x 3.14 inches
