Early Copper Eagle Weathervane

This a full bodied eagle weathervane in the classic pose attributed to A.L.Jewell or the Boston Metal-Workers Company and dates to the 1860's. The eagle stands atop a ball and appears ready for flight.

The body is molded copper with a cast zinc head and feet. The surface is well weathered verdigris with indications of early gilt. He measures 23" beak to wing tips, 11 1/2" wide and 19" tall on the contemporary base.

Jewell and his copiers were at the forefront of the commercial weathervane industry and early examples like this are getting harder and harder to find.
