Container Birchbark Etched Botanical Designs
Add this beautiful Birchbark Container to your collection. The artist etched botanical designs on both sides. A Flower design appears on the cover. A light coat of polyurethane gives it a bit of a shine. The artist used spruce root to hold it together. A bent spruce branch stabilizes the top opening.  The artist scratched the initials 'GS' on the bottom.
The artist used two pieces of Birchbark for the cover. It is very sturdy and you can take it completely off the container. You will see holes on either side of the container that probably held a piece of Leather Lacing that served as a handle.  You can add your own piece of Deerskin Leather Lacing for a handle if you wish.
The Container stands 5″ tall. The bottom measures 5″ x 5″. The top opening measures about 5" in diameter. This Container came from a collection. It is in very good condition. You will see one broken Spruce Root loop on the top.  Use it for storage or display. One of a Kind!
