Copper Weathervane- Price Upon Request
Rare and possibly unique bird-form, possibly a dove, weathervane, made of copper, copper tubing and iron, 33¾ inches high by 40 inches long, American, circa 1865–75. Excellent condition with a wonderful verdigris surface and traces of the original gold leafing. Provenance: Private collection from Connecticut, purchased in the early 1960s. The curvilinear lines and balanced proportions are very successful giving it a slight abstract feel to it as well. The quality of the construction suggests it was made by a skilled craftsman. The front portion of the arrow-head is wrapped with copper, a technique not commonly seen. The over-all condition coupled with the untouched original surface also adds to its desirability.
