Container Birchbark with Cover & Etched Daisies
Container Birchbark with Cover & Etched DaisiesAdd this large Birchbark Container to your collection. The artist etched Daisy designs on the sides and cover. He used spruce root to hold it together. A bent spruce branch stabilizes the top opening. The artist used three pieces of Birchbark for the cover. It is very sturdy and you can take it completely off the container. A piece of Deerskin Leather Lacing serves as a carrying handle.
The Container stands 8.5″ tall. The bottom measures 13″ x 8.5″. The top opening measures about 11″ x 6.5". The cover measures approximately 12.5" x 8.5". This Container came from a collection. It is in good condition. You will see some damaged places on the cover, some broken spruce root around the top and a few scratches on the sides. One of a Kind!
