Rare depiction in the Art Deco fashion of the 1930s of Saint Florian. Probably from Bavaria, Germany. Hand carved and Polychromed.
St. Florian is the patron of Austria and Poland; also firefighters, chimney sweeps, and brewers. He is invoked against fires, floods, lightning, and the pains of purgatory.
St. Florian was a roman commander in charge of a fire brigade and was martyred for not paying tribute to the roman gods in the Diocletian Persecution.
He is regarded as protector of one's home.
Condition: Wear and tear according to its age, traces of dead woodworm present.
Ready to be hanged. Quite interesting vintage piece of art.
