Antique Weather Vanes
Antique weather vanes from the 19th century are highly sought after by collectors who enjoy folk art and weathered patinas. Most were made in New England and New York (J. Howard, A.E. Jewell & Co., J.L. Mott Iron Works and J.W. Fiske) from Copper and cast Zinc. Some rare examples have sold for upwards of one million dollars! Weather vanes take many shapes including running horses, deer, sheep, cow, cod fish, whales and even Indian chiefs and Lady Liberty. They are truly wonderful pieces of Americana!
