Quilled Box Cover
Quilled Box CoverMake this Quilled Birchbark Box Cover the centerpiece of your Quillwork collection! Or use it as a cover for a box that doesn't have one! You will appreciate the time and skill the crafter needed to create this work of art! The crafter used Natural, Orange (or Red?) and possibly Yellow Porcupine Quills to decorate the 9.75" x 7" piece of natural Birchbark. He or she carefully punched the Quills through the bark to make a geometric design. The bark has been set in a curve that resembles the lid of a storage trunk. You will see significant Quill loss on this piece, but the design remains clear. The bark itself also remains in good condition. Age has faded the colors and you will see a white spot of something that landed on the cover. This piece measures 9.75" long x 7" wide. One of a Kind! Shop for more Collectibles!
