Native American Sheet Metal Weathervane


Circa 1920

Sheet metal and Iron

77″ H x 48″ W


This weathervane was found in Vermont and was likely used on an automobile garage. The native American stands proud with a large head dress and a blanket wrapped around his mid section while shooting an arrow. The figure rotates very well because it was made from a bearing from a Model T Ford. Standing over six and a half feet tall, this weathervane has a wonderful presence and beautiful aged painted surface.


WHY WE LOVE IT: Any figure of this scale has a commanding presence. He currently stands in the shop window proudly looking over the adjacent café watching out for any Dallas Cowboy fans.
