This ornament replicates the Americana art form of early weathervanes. In 17th century America, weathervanes forecasted the weather for farmers and mariners alike. Colonial craftsmen created the original forms of handcrafted silhouettes and after the Revolution, imaginative tinsmiths fashioned weathervanes from a variety of barnyard animals and coastal figures. This ornament is handcrafted of pure copper and brass by skilled artisans. Handmade in New England. The ornament is approximately 3" wide x 4" high.
