I have a panel of the J.F. Kernan "Safe". It has red scalloped borders and a scorecard at the bottom.  Across the middle, seperating the picture and scorecard is the following:
362  Painting by J.F. Kernan    SAFE   copyright 1911 by F.A. Schneider.

Can you by any chance shed any light on the approximate age or even value of the piece?  Thanks.
