Antique Weathervane Rooster Rare Brass / Bronze Or Copper ? Hand Hammerd Help ??:
Here we have a estate find very old antique Weathervane rooster . Im not sure if its all hand hammer or if its copper brass or bronze nor its exact age you collectors will be the judge. I can tell you its very very old i could not find another one like it any ware on the computer. It looks like the person who owned it has a old drill bit and screw it on to a old antique block of solid wood. It does screw off its not welded on the drill bit. When you look at the bottom ware screw threads are it begins with a white metal but then it turns into a brass color metal so thats why i my self think its solid brass or bronze but again you collectors will be the judge.Please see the very close up picture of the threads and you will see exactly what i mean about the threads turning into a brass color after the first 4 or 5 threads. If any one can tell me any information about it please do. From the point of his beck to the tail its around 16 1/2 inches long. then from top of tail to bottom of tail its almost 10 inches long. then from his belly to top of his head around 12 inches tall then from one side of hisbody to other side its around 3 1/4 inches fat. Then when sitting on the block from the bottom block of wood to the top of the head its around 26 1/2 inches tall. The wood base it self is 2 1/2 inches thick and left to right around 6 1/2 and front to back around 6 inches long. Still in very good solid condtion i do not see anything broken at all. Again if any one can please tell me who made this and its exact age and what its made of i thank you very much for your help. This was found from the same estate sale as my old antique Gothic chandeliers plus a very old hunting duck hat with old pins on it that i have listed on please have a look at them if you like. I do ship international however im not 100% sure on how much it will cost do to the weight & size so i put $65.00 but if it cost less i will refund you back your balance also if it cost more i would expect same respect and be paid back. I do ot charge for materials nor any handling like most members do. I f you need more pictures or any questions please ask. You may pick up in person if possible thank you so kindly for your time.

Hi guys just to give you a heads upon some information members told methis vane is very rare and all hand made and you will never find out who made it because itsnot a production weathervane its one of a kindand he also told me its worth at least $2,500. then another member told methe screw that was welded to the drill bit is made of brass and when it was screwd on to the weathervane it had left some brass color on the inner threads . so the bottom part is not brass . The screw was not even suppose to have threads it should be flat so the person who ever put this on the drill bit stand added these threads. now how did we figure that out becausethis member had asked me to take a magnet and see if it sticks to the bottom body part ware brass threads are . so i tried that and a magnet does stick to just the body part so that body part with the threads that look like brass is not brass at all im not sure what type of metal that part is but the rest of the bird is copper or brass because a magnet did not stick to any other parts . Now again how true all this is im just going by what these members are telling me again you collectors will be the judge.I just thought i would share this information with you guys it may help you in some way. thank you so kindly for your time & help .
