Container Birchbark Rectangular with Floral Designs
Use this Birchbark Container for storage or add it to your collection. The artist etched Floral designs on the sides and cover with some geometric designs on the ends. A light coat of polyurethane gives it a bit of a shine. He used spruce root to hold it together. A bent spruce branch stabilizes the top opening. The artist used two pieces of Birchbark for the cover. It is very sturdy and you can take it completely off the container. A piece of Deerskin Leather Lacing serves as a carrying handle.
The Container stands 6″ tall. The bottom measures 8″ x 5″. The top of the cover measures approximately 10″ x 6″. This Container came from a collection. It is in good condition. You will see a scratch on the bottom and a place where something poked through the bark at one corner. The cover is a bit warped. One of a Kind!
