    good morning
    I would like to know something about this trunk
    I received it as a gift and I would at least give him a date
    He was particularly interested to know what it means to the white cross and red above
    thanks and good job

      The trunk appears to be a Moritz Madler( that could be his the label on the side) a well known high end malletier that made trunks
      in Berlin ,Hamburg, Leipzig,Frankfort Germany . this trunk was popular from 1905 till the 30's or so. Here are a couple of Advertisments .

      As for the the white ,red , white cross combinations very hard to say. My thoughts are 3 plausible : the colors of Poland , Vatican colors, or possibly the flag of
      St.George ,(Sant Jordi) Barcelona spain. but these would be conjecture. Good luck thanks for the post.
