Early Irvin Air Chute Bag - Circa 1925-35

21-MISC-40

Regular price $135.00

Tan canvas bag about 15"x15"x20" with a top flap secured by 7- Carr Fast Co. post fasteners and front & rear loop web carrying handles. Flap carries the stenciled logo of Irving. Included is a postal cover commemorating the fatal flight of Paul Redfern attempting a solo flight from Brunswick, NJ to Rio de Janeiro in 1927. The story attached to this bag is that it belonged to Redfern but I have no documentation. Nevertheless, a very early artifact from the Golden Age of Aviation. Structurally sound with no tears but with soiling throughout.
