This is a very pretty little round box hand-crafted from birch bark, porcupine quill and sweetgrass. The colours have faded somewhat over time, but the box remains a very attractive and beautifully made piece of Native American art, with intricate weaving and designs of flowers on the lid. The detailed construction of the framework of the box can be clearly seen on the interior and the outside has a mix of quill and sweetgrass work making intricate patterns. There is a small amount of loss of some of the grass section consistent with age but this is not aesthetically displeasing. This is a lovely vintage example of the craftsmanship required to create a box such as this. Diameter 6.5 ins (16.5cm), width 6.5 ins (16.5cm), depth 3.5 ins (9cm). Weight 154 grams. This item can be seen in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 63. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $32.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper.
