Molded Sheet Copper Banneret Weather Vane, probably J.W. Fiske, New York, late 19th century, pierced scrolled form, no stand, (dents, seam separations), ht. 25, wd. 4 3/4, lg. 37 in.
Literature: The banneret design offered here is similar to one illustrated in the 1893 J.W. Fiske Illustrated Catalog and Price List of Copper Weather Vanes, model 489, p. 109.
There may have been medallions attached to the sides, just a shadow and attachment nibs left, 1 x 3/4 in. indentation on top flange of shaft; one side of the vane has weathered black paint the other side-most of the paint is worn off and a dark copper patina remains.
