      The order of the carved panels, top to bottom, is the reverse of what I initially wrote. It is: Hope (top), with symbols an anchor and a bird (sent out by Noah); Charity, with two children; and Faith holding a book, i.e. Bible, and a palm branch signifying victory.

      Not exactly an allegorical figure - more precisely, a personification.
      As to the identification - it says so - "Caritas" - personifying the virtue of charity, usually a woman with one or two children.

      The attachments show a Dutch "tresoor" ca. 1630, with Faith, Charity, and Hope personified (in that order, top to bottom). The detail shows "Caritas."

      That is probably the most likely explanation.
      It would also fit in with the fact that she has a blue halo which I
      noticed after I sent the email.

      I also thought it might be St Anne with St Mary as a child.
