Your opinion on this American naive/folk painting?

So I am an amateur antique hunter and buy whatever strikes me as odd or unusual or in this case folk-y. Which is all well and good but I often have a hard time identifying what I found. I am having a hard time figuring this one out.
My spidey sense tells me it may be a modern painting that has been aged to make it look like an antique but stylistically I am not so sure. There is no signature. It is painted on an old cabinet door and the paint has been covered with a varnish of some sort. The cabinet has a wood veneer on it. Is it 70's folksy or is it actually fairly old? I've been googling like a mad man for a day now and can't find anything that really matches it in terms of the perspective and the size of the people featured and the adornments in each corner.
Thanks in advance.
