What does this mean?

Dear Kirk,

Thank you for your additional images and your patience.

The presented object appears to be a plaster figurine with measurements of 15 x 8 inches. This piece was made as a reproduction after a British or French alabaster statue of the mid 15th century. The original statue depicted probably St. Fiacre (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Fiacre) with a spate as an attribute. It is nowadays exhibited in the collections of the MET (https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/472307). It is clearly visible on the surface and the damages that this is figurine made out of a cast mass. It was made in the late 19th or more probably in the 20th century.
This piece is in medium condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 100 to 200 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
George
