Farmhouse Weathervane Accessories
Show your allegiance to man's best friend! A faithful companion, the Retriever is one of the most popular breeds.
For centuries, weathervanes have been relied upon to indicate the direction of the wind in order to predict weather patterns. Today, although still fully functional, weathervanes are also used as decorative accents.
Our Farmhouse Weathervanes are the perfect complement for any home, garden, cupola or garden. Handcrafted of pure copper and brass by skilled artisans, this weathervane 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.

Copper 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.
Cast brass fittings are used for the cardinal points (NSEW) on our 3D polished copper weathervanes.
Steel 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.
The 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.
