Traditionally, the primary purpose of the weathervane was to determine the direction of the wind for farmers, fisherman, and others whose livelihood depended on accurately reading the weather. These weathervanes were placed atop homes, barns, churches, and places of business. The shape of these weathervanes was also used to indicate the trade or agricultural specialty carried on in the buildings upon which they sat.
Our weathervane designs range from the famous racehorses of the original Currier & Ives prints to the typical barnyard animals such as roosters, pigs, cows & sheep to Custom Designs. Weathervanes were considered lucky charms that families traditionally kept for generations. Each one of our richly detailed, copper weathervanes is ready to become your lucky charm!
