Gothic wooden triptych with carved bone figures

Three gothic-arched wooden panels, probably 19th century, are attached by black metal hinges, forming a classic triptych. Nine carved bone figures, possibly 17th century, represent Christ the King with an open book under a Romanesque arch and several angels and saints in attitudes of prayer and adoration. In the top course of the triptych are three small paintings in full and half trefoils of a dove descending and two quarter moons with faces. Above the dove are the initials ET and to each side of the wings, the words Hic Rex. Below the paintings are the words in Latin: Regina mater nostra glori elincelsis. Size fully open is 19" wide, 17" high and 1" thick. Condition is consonant with the age. The wood has been painted and gilded lightly in some places and has wormholes. There is a large crack that runs most of the length of the left panel.
