Antique Painted Birchbark Rogan

This Antique Birchbark Rogan features painted designs. The artist painted the light color around flowers, leaves and geometric designs.   A flower also appears on the cover. A light coat of polyurethane gives it a bit of a shine.  The artist used dyed spruce root to hold it together. A bent spruce branch stabilizes the top opening. The artist used two pieces of Birchbark for the cover.  The cover is very sturdy and you can take it completely off the container.  A piece of Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing serves as a carrying handle.
The Rogan stands 6.5″ tall.  The bottom measures 7″ x 5.5″.    The top opening measures about 6″ x 5" in diameter. This Rogan came from a collection. It is in good condition. You will see some broken spruce root around the top and a couple of light scratches.  One of a Kind!
