Weather Vane: Antique Piglet, Gilded Copper & Iron, 28



WEATHER VANE: Antique Piglet, Gilded Copper & Iron, 28" Tall x 20.25" Wide

If you set your monitor at FULL SCREEN from TOOLS you will be better able to view the photos.

This is a very charming Weather Vane featuring a Piglet whichI bought in New Hampshire years ago, west of Nashua, near Milford Circle. It also served originally as a lightning rod.I removed the bottom end of the vertical supporting rod which had the remnants of the cables attached and placed the wooden block to give the rod its original height.

The tripod support and the arrow are iron. The Piglet, balls and top spike are all gilded copper. The piglet and top spike seem to have a mustard colored undercoat, which many of these old vanes have. When the gilding begins to wear, this undercoat helps to make it less apparent froma distance.

This Weather Vane measures 28 inches tall and 20 1/4 inches wide. The tripod support is 11 1/2 inches tall, the arrow, 20 1/4 inches long. The Piglet himself is 9 inches long from his snout to his curly tail and 5 1/4 inches tall. The balls are 3 3/4 inches and 2 1/2 inches in diameter respectively. The spike at the top rises 6 1/4 inches from the small ball.

Much of the gilding is worn away and the vertical rod has a great coat of verdigris. On the whole this Weather Vane is in pretty good shape and the Piglet still turns freely on his rod.

The photos give a very good idea of the shape and color of this charming Weather Vane.

If you should have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. And thanks for looking.

Due to limitations of photography and the inevitable differences in monitor settings, the color of the pictures may be slightly different on your monitor from theWeather Vaneitself, but, at least on my monitor, the color is a perfect match.
