    I do not know this design, I am sorry.

    But some one in Bulgaria tries to sell much the same item on an auction site under the identification "WWII ORIGINAL GERMAN LUFTWAFFE OFFICER LEATHER MAP CASE":
    http://cgi.ebay.com.sg/WWII-ORIGINAL...-/290374520789

    And for me, these have more the look of indeed Bulgar, by the type and finishing of the leather. Here a one that is a little similar and indeed called "Bulgarian WWII royal army officer combat map case":

    If both really for air forces and Bulgar, perhaps the Bulgarian Air Force Museum could help?

    I am sure another colleague will know more perfectly. But perhaps this is a little help.

    Not Soviet to the best of my knowledge either.

    I think Frayer is correct: Bulgarian.

    Cheers, Ade.
