i found this in one of the frames i recently purchased. there was a picture on top of this in a very old, plain wooden frame behind a very old and warped pane of glass. the picture in front had been completely ruined by the elements and i through it out. this was behind it though and it looks quite old - and like it has been used. see the holes in the corner where it was probably tacked up? is it worth anything? anyone know how old? would it be worth having it restored? can water marks like these be removed safely?

thanks!

    This is called "Registo de Santo". Very common here in Portugal. Actually this is from Azores... They were used to pray at home as if you were praying in front of the real image of the saint at the church. In this one says that who prayed 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and 1 Glory Be in front of this "estampa", would receive 40 days of indulgence.
    I have one made of silk or similar fabric from the 18th century. This one seems from the same period.
