    I honestly don't know anything about it. I just think it's amazing. I've never seen a trunk covered in a carpet like material.

      F.W. Gromm Manufacturer is the maker established in 1873, By 1895, trunks were covered with canvas or decorated sheet metal. Embossed metal coverings were used from 1870 to 1910. By 1925, trunks were covered with vulcanized fiber or undercoated metal.

      Its more like petit point material than carpet. Nice covering.

      Here is some history for the F.W. Gromm trunk company some advertising .

      It is a carpet trunk(The carpet is not in great shape but is still present) You will not find that many of these left I can assure you.They tended to be made only by the better manufacturers and were Higher end for the time period.It does have exceptional hardware, that is not seen that often.This is to include the center lock.It is wonderful to see the (partial) original center strap with buckle still intact. These tended to take the most abuse and tended not to survive father time.

      Hope this sheds some light, thanks for the post you confined other examples by doing a search for "carpet covered trunk images". I will see if I can find the patent for the lock As I have seen it before.
      Thanks for the post.
