I was told this was purchased in Italy. It's wood and hand carved. depicts the nativity. It measures 14" when open and is 15" tall. I believe the left panel is Joseph, the center Mary and Baby Jesus and the right is one of the kings. I do not know it's age but I bought it from an older woman. The back is busy as you can see. I do not know what kind of wood this is. It is in excellent condition. I do not see any flaws. Thank you for your time.
