Sheep weathervanes were common on barns in New England because the rocky terrain was conducive to sheep ranching. This swell body copper weathervane is in the form of a female Merino sheep and likely dates to the first quarter of the 20th Century. It is a large example measuring 28" long and 24 1/2" tall.
The condition is excellent with a desireable verdigris surface and no damage (bullet holes) and no repairs. It is mounted on a custom museum stand.
The sheep form is less commonly found today, especially in this condition and size.
