Running Deer Weathervane
This is a John Garret Thew design made in the original mold set which he passed to me on his retirement. I am proud to continue to offer this beautiful piece in his name.
Ferro Weathervanes are artistically created by hand-sculpting copper sheets through a unique repousse technique resulting in finely shaped and textured figures not found on other weathervanes. Pure copper, brass, stainless steel, and real gold leaf make my weathervanes completely weatherproof. My work is confidently guaranteed for life. This design is available by commission.

- 30″ long x 18″H figure + 14″H Assembly = 32″H weathervane + 14“H mounting root.
- Comes complete with ornamental balls, brass directionals, and stainless steel post.
Animal Weathervanes littered the American rural skyline in the late nineteenth century. Almost every copper weathervane manufactured in that period was gold leafed. Affluent farmers purchased what was important to them. Their prized livestock and favorite animals to hunt were what they spent their hard-earned money on and they crowned the quintessential barns that dotted the landscape. In today’s small world, animals of every possible species have a fan somewhere and keep weathervane sculptors busy with fun and challenging requests.
Choose from one of these individually handcrafted, copper weathervanes, or have a custom one created for you.
Each hand-sculpted weathervane comes with your choice of finish and is signed & dated by the artist.
