Maker and Role
Tasman Empire Airways Limited, Commissioned by
Brown leather square-shaped handbag. Bottom is square and the top rounded. The back extends into a flap that folds ¾ of the way down the front. There is a rectangular cut-out in the flap that exposes a logo attached to the front of the bag. A 48 mm wide strap that attaches at the middle back, folds over the top and fits through the logo to close the bag. An adjustable handle attaches near the top of the 2 narrow sides with a metal loop. The interior is unlined, however. There is a fabric pocket sewn onto interior back though it has almost fallen off completely.
