Weathervane



Joe found this weathervane late Saturday.
 I was tired and did not go with him to the sale.
 My mistake.


It is five feet tall and copper except for it's cast iron feet.





This weathervane is worse than a lamp to photograph. 
But look at that patina. That is real.







 I think Joe is developing an excellent eye. 
This will be in our booths Christmas Open House November 10th. 
Please join us from 1pm-4pm at Ridge Antiques in Ridge Spring, South Carolina.


joy and peace

  20. What a great find your husband brought home Olive. Love it!
    It has been so long since I have been here and I had to go back and read and see all the wonderful things and photos you have been taking. Your fall has been full of beauty and it has been so good to catch up with you.
    hugs from me...

  21. Yes, I like it too. The verdict seems to be that the Mr Rooster would be very happy to live at the Yellow House, if only for a little while.

  24. Oh, Olive! I loooooove that weathervane and if you were not so far away I would be knocking on your door!!! Such a beautiful piece. I wonder if it was on a barn and if the barn is still standing? Linda

  28. That rooster is such a beautiful, sculptural piece.

  29. Is there anything better than finding a fabulous old piece with honest patina?!? I think not and this one is a beauty!!!! Romeo was particularly fond of it until I reminded him that if that rooster was real, he'd be pecked most seriously ;)

    Hugs and purrs,

    "her" and Romeo
