Rare Antique American Folk Art Iron Fox Hunting Hound Weathervane Dog Form AAFA

Description:

Superb Antique Running Fox Hound Weathervane


Having been in a private Connecticut collection for over thirty years, we are pleased to offer this wonderful example of blacksmith made American Folk Art.

Please take a moment to click on the images and you'll see you can produce enlarged details that help to showcase the charming features of this old weathervane, from its great patina, to the nice riveting.

The profile as you can see is a running fox hound. Excellent attention to detail, the original maker wrought this piece with various pieces of metal, not sparing and details of the hound, including a punched out eye form, and even the tip of the dogs tongue.

Great support bars and riveting to the body of the piece. Again, the enlargements help to showcase the original construction.

Has multiple layers of paint present. The piece looks to have been originally a red with possibly some yellow areas (perhaps the remains of old lettering from the estate in which it was used), and later a darker brown. From exposure to the elements the paint has chipped in areas leaving a great patina, and truly wonderful old folk art character.

Some slight areas of pitting from age, weathering to the paint, but all in all a very good example of period folk art, and one that's sure to make a commanding presentation in any collection or decorum.

The piece measures a handsome 37 1/2" in length.

Thanks for your interest in this piece. We are pleased to offer it on a week long sale with .

Thanks again for visiting us here at Cachefinds!
