Hi, Mike !
Looks right up your medieval alley !
Marine flags/standards colour plate. I know it looks 'old', but the problem
is that the book it may have come from is still being published.
With a strong magnifier, see if there is a 'dot matrix' pattern in the
printing - similar to newspaper photos. This will tell if it's a
reprint of an older plate........
Have a look here:
Album des pavillons - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hard to tell Steve, I can see wood grain in the paper, don't know why someone would go to all the trouble to "frame" up a modern page, but you never know nowadays. I know someone spent alot of money on the frame for these, it is fancy!
