This small trunk is 18" wide, 17" tall and 14" deep. It has the original label inside from F. W. Gromm of Denver, Colorado. It has only been cleaned a little and kept as original as possible including the top handle. The carpet covering is still in very good condition and the trunk has latches patented in the mid 1880's. I found some history on the company that said they were in business since 1873, and a book on the City of Denver printed in 1890 said that Gromm was the leading trunk maker in Denver. An interesting note was that "their main factory occupies the whole of three basements under the Brunswick Hotel". It's one I've decided to keep in my collection now for a few years. I'd like to have a large full size carpet covered trunk too, but these sure take up a lot less room! Thanks for taking a look!
