Box Quilled Birchbark Rectangle
Add this Rectangular Quilled Birchbark Box to your collection or use it as an attractive storage container! The crafter used natural Birchbark to make the sides. Then he or she bound each edge with strands of Sweetgrass. Bound Sweetgrass also serves as the loop closure. Black thread attaches the lid to the base. The crafter created a simple floral design on the lid with Pink and Green Porcupine Quills. Additional designs in Natural and Pink Quills appear on the top and sides.
This Rectangular Quilled Birchbark Box is in like new condition. You will notice the remains of a label on the bottom. The Box measures 7″ x 4″ and stands 2.5″ high with the lid on. Keep this box out of direct sunlight and away from water to preserve its color and integrity.
