Birchbark Container Scalloped Edging


Cutout Scalloped Edge Birchbark Container

Use this Scalloped Edge Birchbark Container for storage or add it to your collection. The crafter used Spruce Root to put the container together.  Then he or she cut out a scalloped piece of Birchbark and attached it around the top of the container with more Spruce Root.   A light coat of polyurethane gives it a bit of a shine.   Otherwise, the crafter left the Birchbark in its natural state.

Birchbark containers are traditional containers made from the bark of birch trees. They are typically used by Indigenous people in North America for storing and transporting food, clothing, and other items.  This Container stands about 7″ tall.  The bottom measures 6.5″ x 4″.  The top opening is about 7″ x 6″.  This Container came from a collection. It is in good condition. One of a Kind!
