Traditionally weathervanes were used to show the direction of the wind in order to predict weather patterns and were known to have been used on Viking ships.
Perfect for smaller structures such as bungalows, garages and sheds, the Cottage range of weathervanes add whimsical interest to structures. The decorative feature and spacer balls are made from polished copper and brazed together by hand. The cardinal points, NSEW are polished brass with a powder-coated black steel rotation rod.
Polished copper will quickly lose its lustre, developing an attractive patina before finally turning Verdigris after many years. This process can be slowed down by applying several costs of a good quality clear lacquer spray. The polished brass will discolour in time. A coat of Hammerite will extend the life of the steel rotation rod.
All Cottage weathervanes are supplied as standard with an Eave Bracket. This bracket projects 125mm (5”) with a 7.5cm square mounting plate.
The Landing Duck Weathervane portrays this characterful bird coming in to land, craning his neck with wings outstretched and feet reaching for touchdown.
