Horse Weathervane

Possibly Cushing and White

Waltham, Massachusetts

Circa 1895


17 3/4″ H x 32″ W

Weathervanes are an iconic form in American folk art. They were used on a variety of buildings. This horse weathervane, with form and verdigris, stands out amongst others. The rich verdigris finish consummate of age creates a beautiful effect and survives in beautiful condition. The horse is galloping through the air and the motion can truly be seen. The mane and tail are blowing in the wind.

WHY WE LOVE IT: The gorgeous form and verdigris of this stunning horse weathervane make this piece quite special.
