I. Nagy,
Thank your for the reply/information. I have attached two other pictures. It has numerous other "seals" on the edges besides the one you commented on. Any further thoughts? Thank you

五福五代堂古稀天子寳

It's a seal that the Qianlong emperor impressed on painting and calligraphy in the imperial collection. If it appears on a picture you own, the odds are overwhelming that you have either a reproduction of an existing painting or an imitation/forgery

Yes, this is a painting by a Jesuit priest named Guiseppe Castiglione, who was a favorite of the Qianlong emperor for his paintings fusing western realism with Chinese subjects. The original is in the National Palace Museum, Taiwan. Your picture was probably sold in the museum shop. I can't see the other seals in your image clearly, but the photograph of the painting below suggests that most of them are other Qianlong seals, both the emperor's and his painting inventory seals.
