Antique Primitive Folk Art Wooden Swan Weathervane Original Paint Aafa:
Freshly found, this wonderful swan or hissing goose folk art weathervane has a fabulous, strong presentation in its folky form. Measuring approximately 39” in total length by 11” wide at the widest and about one inch thick, I believe it hails from the first quarter of the 20th century. The old repairs along the wing and the base appear to have been put in to stabilize cracks that had begun, but not travelled. The neck either had been a separate piece, or had sheared off at some point as it too, has the old pinned repairs. It does fit well when pushed in place but still wobbles, and will need reinforcement along the old pin shadows that have fallen out to make him fully secure again. I’ve left him as shown to show where the old pins had attached. Very, very cool form. Except for the neck needing to be stabilized better, remarkably there is no damage to the bill nor to the wing tips. Buyer pays exact shipping and insurance. I do not charge for packing materials.
