So, there are several copies of the same design on certain ones, but they are always different. They will keep the design but change the color scheme, so one that I have I call "The Judge", there are four different renditions of the same image, but the curtains, clothes background, etc. is a different color. Like I have said the larger ones say, "Tong Tai, Fuh King Street, Fatshan, Canton China" and the only reference I found was in Wothpoint which said the date 1899 and that they were made for application by Monks in temples and altars. You have to have the hands of a brain surgeon to apply these without wrinkles or breakage!!! Thanks again, Michelle
