Date of Trunk?

An old trunk with M.H.G. on the front.I am wondering what the age of this trunk would be. It was used as part of the Home Child emigration programs were over 100,000 children were removed from the UK and sent to Canada as child labourers.

The program existed between 1869 and 1932. This trunk looks like it was in the earlier part of the program. www.bac-lac.gc.ca/.../home-children.aspx#a

Thank you for the help. I have a collection of these trunks, many from the earlier years - the programs actually ran from 1868 to 1948 - the LAC index only covers until 1932. I am thinking this trunk may date from the 1920's. I am hoping that somebody with a knowledge of vintage trunks could help date this for me.
