Amazing find! The stickers provide character patina.Today’s find, an early 20th century J. Coessens of Brussels leather and brass on wood wardrobe trunk. This beauty is heavy duty and sports vintage hotel decals from Paris, Brussels, and The Hague. My guess is that it is from the 1930s given the detailing of the decals.
I picked it up from a local consignment shop. Still not exactly sure what I will do with it.

Wow! Those are so incredibly unusual...one could wrap an entire research project/paper just looking at the intricate carvings on the stakes. Thank you for sharing that unusual find with us.
I've got to get a list of the resale shops you haunt! That is quite a find.
