Sap bucket of folded birch bark

Copyright Minnesota Historical Society Collections

Sap bucket formed from a single piece of birchbark folded together at the ends and sewn with basswood strips to form an oval dish. It is made with the white bark on the interior and the golden brown bark on the exterior. This type of bucket was usually used for gathering sugar maple sap to be refined into syrup or sugar.
