Rogan Birchbark Etched


Rogan Birchbark Etched

This Etched Birchbark Rogan comes with a Cover.  The artist etched botanical designs on the back of the Birchbark while it was still green.  As it dried, the image darkened.  The artist used spruce root to hold it together.  The artist used two pieces of Birchbark for the cover.  The cover is very sturdy and you can take it completely off the container. A light coat of polyurethane gives it a bit of a shine.   A piece of Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing serves as a carrying handle.

This Rogan stands 7″ tall.  The bottom measures 8.5″ x 7.5″.  The cover measures 8.25″ x 6.5″.  We got this Rogan from a collection. You will see a small hole on one side and some discoloration on the bottom. Structurally it is in very good condition.  It will make a lovely display piece!  One of a Kind!
