Copper Swell-Body Rooster Weathervane

$2,650.00 USD

This is about as large a rooster weathervane the commercial houses made.  The rooster measures 32" tall and sits on a 38" arrow.  On the museum stand it is a proud 44" tall.

Both swell-body rooster and arrow are copper as are the attached, sheet copper tail, comb and wattle.

The rooster is one of the earliest weathervane forms, first used by European churches to remind members of Peter's denial of Christ.  This one is not that old, likely dating to the first part of the 20th Century.

Condition is very good with no losses and no repairs.  The surface is a weathered verdigris.  The museum stand is contemporary.

An estimated $150 is included in the price to cover packing, shipping and insurance.
