Birchbark Berry Basket

Birchbark Berry Basket
This etched Birchbark Berry Basket will make a unique addition to your collection!   The artist used a single piece of White Birchbark for the main part.  He or she etched leaf designs on it and used spruce root to attach a bottom section with a rim.  Along the top you will see the crafter attached a  wood rim for stability.  Pieces of Braintanned Moosehide Lacing serve as carrying handles. This Berry Basket stands 8.5" high.  The top measures  about 8" in diameter.  The bottom measures 6" in diameter.  This basket has been wet.  You will see a water stain on the side and warping on the bottom.  It is intact and in good condition otherwise.
