Silhouette Running Fox Form Weathervane

Silhouette Running Fox Form Weathervane
Weathered Sheet Copper
With Wonderful Verdigris Surface
English c.1870

27 ½” high x 26” wide x 6” deep

Ref: 6315

In lovely natural “as found” weathered condition, this domestic weathervane is cut from sheet copper and fixed with now well oxidised solder. The Fox benefits from an exceptional natural verdigris surface and colour.
It is of attractive small scale and was probably made for a small cottage of folly and has engaging presence and movement to the form. A fine example of the British vernacular.
