Doll Cradle Birchbark
Doll Cradle BirchbarkAdd this Birchbark Doll Cradle to your collection! The artist used Birchbark held together with pieces of spruce root to make the main section of the Cradle. He attached a separate piece to the top and added a piece of Deerskin Leather Lacing for a strap. Small pieces of serrated bark add a bit of design to the back.
This Doll Cradle measures about 11″ long overall and about 6.25" at the widest point. The Cradle came from a collection. It is in good condition. You will see a break in the bark at the top. The Deerskin Lacing is stiff and discolored. The Cradle will not stand upright on its own, so you will need to prop it up for display. One of a Kind!
