Nineteenth century classic folk art, an American weather vane of a galloping horse, dimensions 28" by 15" by 3", with contemporary birch wood block mount for display. The piece was acquired in Connecticut. Weather vanes are not my specialty. I know that there are recognized makers (Harris?) but cannot attribute this to any particular source. The piece had bullet holes that have been fixed and smoothed over, so, work has been done to this. The gilt and mustard paint surface, it has been suggested to me, might be completely or partially re-applied. Again, I cannot speak with great knowledge on this. What I do know is that the horse has an excellent presence, a great silhouette, and convincing look, and it is genuinely old. A fine display piece, perhaps on a dining table that is only used periodically.
