Horse Weathervanes have a quality of motion that is inherently charming. These equestrian figures were very popular in the late 1800s because horses were the main mode for transportation and working farms. Later, they became sporting obsessions. Only the wealthy could play, but everyone could be a spectator. Horse racing, polo, dressage, and fox hunting were so popular that the particular horses and their riders became celebrities today. Their likenesses were made into molds. Copper sheets were hammered into the molds then soldered together to recreate the body. These beautifully executed figures were recognized in the 1960s as folk art and continue to be cherished as symbols of Americana today.
