You cannot fail but to be impressed with our Large Farmhouse copper Bi Plane. Imagine the unique sound of a cyclone engine clattering over the roof tops evoking memories of a simpler time. Let it soar over your rooftop into the wild blue yonder - watch the sun set as it comes into land - what better way to enjoy the peace of your garden.

For centuries, weather vanes have been relied upon to indicate the direction of the wind in order to predict weather patterns. Today, although still fully functional, weather vanes are also used as decorative statements.

Our Farmhouse Weather vanes are the perfect complement for any home, garden, cupola or garden. Handcrafted from the best materials by skilled artisans, this weather vane is a work of art.

Apart from traditional cardinals for the UK (NSEW) we can supply alternative cardinal arms for France, Italy and Spain (NSEO), Holland (NZOW), Germany (NSOW) - please contact us to make the free of charge substitution.

 Construction

CopperCopper is used on our 3D ranges (heads and spacers) offering timeless quality with corrosion-free durability.  This precious metal naturally achieves a verdigris effect over a period of time.  A lacquer spray can be used to prolong the polished effect and delay the development of the natural patina.  The 3D bodies are handcrafted from beaten copper sections and brazed.  The brazing will be visible, but this does not tend to detract from the overall good looks of our copper weathervanes.

Brass ConstructionCast brass fittings are used for the cardinal points (NSEW) on our 3D polished copper weathervanes.


 

Steel ConstructionSteel is used for the rotation rods and standard bracket mount on the 3D weathervanes.  The steel is coated with an exterior quality powder coat paint for extended life.

Black Powder Coat PaintThe weathervane rods and mounts are coated with an exterior quality powder coat paint which protects the steel and offers a durable finish.  You can expect this finish to look good for quite some time!  For extended life, we suggest giving the mount a coat of Hammerite paint.
