A 19th century copper pennant weathervane wind direction indicator in distinctive quatrefoil form
A 19th century copper pennant wind direction indicator which once was the apex of a wrought iron weathervane with scrolling brackets that stood over 160cm tall.
The copper pennant is in the decorative quatrefoil form and has on both sides a distinctive patina resulting from various overpaints made over the copper base possibly in the mid. 20th century. The copper base is showing through in parts.
This unique and rare (still working) pennant assembly has been mounted on a metal stand for display and is 88cm. tall and weighs 4.46kg. The pennant can be removed from the base for shipping.
