This weathervane was carved by the noted folk artist - woodcarver from Saisconset, MA. The original copper weathervane "Fame" is based on the copper weathervane which is part of the collection of the Museum of American Folk Art. The original dates from 1880 - 1890. This work is made of carved and applied wood which is painted to resemble weathered copper. It was created in 2004. The weathervane depicts the Greek Goddess and allegorical figure of "Fame". She is an ambivalent figure whose wreath bestows fame or notoriety and whose trumpet spreads news far and wide. Condition is excellent and we will provide a crate for white glove shipping.

Provenance: The Clydes Restaurant Group based in Washington, DC. purchased and commissioned Perry to create this piece for the Chandler Barn Dining Room at Willow Creek Farm in Leesburg, VA. It remained there until 2008 when it was deaccessioned during a renovation of the dining room. More information about the sculptor can be found on the Mark A. Perry website. The first image reflects the most accurate depiction of the painted surface. The variants in different lighting come out. Dimensions: Height: 61", Width: 52", Depth: 30".
