Antique Wooden Pedestal

I don't know if it is alabaster or marble. I'm assuming alabaster because it's pure white. It weighs quite a bit. It has some kind of a frame within it, as evidenced by the missing toe. That is the only imperfection anywhere on it, otherwise perfect. I would list the condition as excellent if not for the missing toe, which is cleanly missing w/a smooth surface beneath it. It doesn't look "broken" off.

This was my grandmother's who was born around 1900. I have no idea how old the statue is, but she had it for a long time and she passed away in the 70s. I find nothing else like it online when I search. Hopefully someone can help me identify and appraise it. My parents passed away and my sister wants to take it, but before I give it up, I'd like to know if it has any real value.
