American Antique Weathervanes: The Complete
Illustrated Westervelt Catalog of 1883 (Reproduction)
New York, Dover, 1982
This wonderful book presents us with a wide selection of what was popular at the time. The wonderful engravings most often accurately represent the weathervane that was made. Many of the designs in this catalog were not original Westervelt designs but pieces that were made by other manufacturers and resold by Westervelt in an attempt to capture a wider market. Some lightning rods and stable fixtures are also shown.
