I inherited this 13-14th century German trunk from my parents. In the late 40's they were stationed in Texas. A German scientist and his wife were brought over for Operation Paper Clip and befriended my parents. I have a letter written by my mother documenting the stage of events. When this couple left the country they gave my parents the trunk and it's contents to sell for them as they wanted to return with their weight limit with basic supplies and not the weight of their belongings in and with the trunk. It is currently on display at a University Renaissance Center.
