Bentwood container, ca. 1820
Contributed by Hudson Museum, Univ. of Maine
The construction of this Native American bentwood container is similar to that of birchbark and, like birchbark, is sewn together with spruce root.
It is one of the few extant examples of this tradition and may have served as a man's toolbox.
