Large Antique Copper Weathervane w/ Directionals, Authentic Folk Art, Farm Fresh

Estate Find. New to the Market.  A full copper body of classic form with wonderfully delineated lines. It was always functional until put away in a store room and forgotten in an old country house in New York State.  Now it is a piece of American Folk Art new to the market.  Running Deer with Arrow.  Sold as found, as is.  Farm fresh.  Full body, copper sheeting, brass directionals, cast iron rod.  Hand hammered and soldered copper 3 dimensional figure.  It is rare to find a weathervane with its original directionals or pointing arrow.  Excellent condition for a piece of this vintage.  Shows the expected wear and authentic patination of an item that was on a roof for many years.  Has not been cleaned or polished. Iron rod is heavily rusted which can be left as is, cleaned or replaced as you wish with a mounting or stand.   Rod separates into two pieces for storage or transport.  Measures 72 inches high & 31 inches wide (see photo with green yardstick ruler to judge size) and weighs approximately 40 lbs. See all photos for more information.

With a little professional conservancy, this American weathervane will be a masterpiece.
