The art deco style No. 1A Gift Kodak was intended for women, and was designed by Walter Dorwin Teague. It takes 116 film, and has a meniscus achromatic lens. It is a special version of the No. 1A Pocket Kodak Junior and was introduced for the Christmas season in 1930.
The brown leather-covered camera has matching brown bellows, brown enamel trim and a patterned lens panel. It came in a cedar box with an art deco enamelled metal pattern on the lid. A similar pattern is on the outer box. A total of 10,000 units was made.
