Birchbark Container with Eagle Design
Etched Birchbark Container with Eagle SceneSOLD This Birchbark Basket with Round Lid features an etched scene featuring a flying Eagle. The artist etched mountains, trees and the moon on the sides. The cover has a geometric design. The artist used spruce root to hold the container together. He made the cover with two pieces of Birchbark. The cover is very sturdy and you can take it completely off the container. A piece of Deerskin Leather Lacing coming through the top serves as a handle.
Birchbark containers are traditional containers made from the bark of birch trees. They are typically used by Indigenous people in North America for storing and transporting food, clothing, and other items. This Container stands 3.5″ tall with the lid. The bottom measures 3.5″ in diameter and the cover measures 4″ in diameter. We got this container from a collection. It will make a lovely display piece! One of a Kind!
