Berry Basket Etched Birchbark
This charming Berry Basket will make a welcome addition to your collection! The artist made the Berry Basket with two pieces of Birchbark. He used spruce root to hold it together. He etched floral designs on the outside. A light coat of polyurethane gives it a bit of a shine. A bent spruce branch stabilizes the top. Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing serves as a carrying/storage handle.
This Berry Basket stands about 8.5″ tall. The bottom measures approximately 4.5″ in diameter. The top measures 7″ in diameter. We got this Basket from a collection. It is in good condition. You will see the bark on the bottom has dried and shrunk so there are gaps at the bottom. One of a Kind!
