Depicting the rare subject of the Virgin nursing the Christ Child, this intriguing group was thought by Boccador (op. cit.) to be a late 14th-century work from the Upper Rhine region. Stylistically, an origin in the mid-15th century in the same region, or possibly in Eastern France, seems more likely. For the concentric folds of drapery, in particular, compare a stone Virgin and Child from Lorraine in the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum (Müller, op. cit., no. 114). The Virgin's almond-shaped eyes, small mouth, and wavy strands of hair relate to the work of the Strasburg master sculptor Niclaus Gerhaert van Leyden (see Roller, op. cit., cat. no. 3a).
