This image shows the McLeod pung, just as it was received by the family who donated it back to the Factory, now a Museum.

Having kept their pung carefully stored away for more than 60 years, the McLeod family decided the right thing to do would be to give it back to the Factory where it was made... now a museum. The Museum has yet to do any restoration on this pung, but already has plans for where it will be placed on display, because -- as the very last pung made and sold after 100 years -- it is now one of their proudest possessions!
