This copper weathervane features a patchen horse galloping across a powder-coated steel shaft that includes brass compass points and copper spacer balls. Although historical weathervanes were solely instruments for detecting weather changes by determining the direction of blowing wind, today weather vanes such as this are also decorative displays of culture and style. Perfect atop any home pinnacle or cupola, this full-size, functional weathervane is hand-crafted and colored in a polished copper finish to be water and rust resistant. Assembly required. Adjustable mounting bracket (Item # GD401) sold separately. Horse Ornament: 27"Wx1"Dx15"H. 13 lbs. Total Height with Spire: 33"H.
