Weathervanes are an iconic part of folk art and Americana. Used in civilian purposes, on homes and barns, and in rare examples used civic buildings, like this large banner weathervane. Standing over 6 feet long this vane was reported to sit on top of the courthouse in Maine. It survives in a beautiful untouched verdigris finish the minor traces of the original gilding with the cast iron directional to a perfect natural patina. Attributed to Howard & Co.


WHY WE LOVE IT: A rare large survivor with a stunning patina.
