Painted wood statue of Balthasar

This is a painted wood statue of Balthasar I saw in the Hunt Museum in Limerick a few weeks ago. The museum doesn’t have very extensive glosses on most of its pieces (it was a family collection that became an underfunded public organisation) – all it says about this this is “probably German, 14th century”. I know very little about 14th-century fashion but the shoes look about right to me.
