Birchbark Basket with Floral Design and Cover
Add this handmade Birchbark Basket with Cover to your home! The artist etched floral designs on the back of the Birchbark while it was still green. As it dried, the image darkened. He or she used spruce root to hold it together and 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.
This basket stands 7.5″ tall. The bottom measures 5.75″ x 6.5″. The cover measures 7″ x 6.5″. One of a Kind!
