Container Birchbark Etched with Valence
Birchbark Container with ValenceThis unusual Birchbark Container will be a welcome addition to your collection! The artist etched the design on the back of the Birchbark while it was still green. As it dried, the image darkened. He etched geometric designs on all sides of the container. Then he added a cutout valence around the top. The artist used spruce root to hold it together. A bent spruce branch stabilizes the top opening.
This Container stands 6.25″ tall. The bottom measures 6.5" x 6". The opening measures 5.75" x 4.5" We got this piece from a collection. It is in very good condition. Use it for storage or display. One of a Kind!
