Default Wings

Agreed. Construction suggests Indian/Pakistani (depending on overall width as Pakistani wings tend to be larger). There is a lack of a horizontal split in the two inner most feathers (closest to the shroud lines). There are stitches over the shroud lines where they meet the canopy. Only point I note is the shape of the item at the base of the shroud lines. It's triangular, while pictures I have seen show either squarish box or box with rounded bottom. This could be explained by manufacturing variation. As to originality, I cannot comment. Only my opinion, but newness of the condition suggests post war manufacture to me. Others may disagree.
