Although the depiction of the Christ Child recalls earlier representations, the style of the Virgin's overtunic with the round neck and finely gathered ruched shirt beneath, together with the lightly tied sash about her waist terminating in a loose bow, indicate that the group dates from the turn of the 15th to the 16th century. Groups originating from Northern France provide the nearest comparison with the clothing and iconography. Compare with the figure of St. Catherine in the church of Saint Jacques, Abbeville, Picardie illustrated by de Paepe.
