Hand Hammered Copper Weather Vanes

Hand Hammered Full Bodied Copper Eagle Weather Vane Complete

Made in the U.S.A.

These weather vanes are made by hammering copper into cast iron molds.
The pieces are then hand trimmed and soldered into a complete figure.
Some figures, like the Cow, have as many as 27 pieces.
Detailed parts, like the Rooster's feet and the Longhorn's horns, are cast of bronze.

These are the only American weather vanes still being made in this time-honored way.
Our friends have been crafting these historic weathervanes for two generations.
We feel very fortunate to be able to offer these hand hammered copper weather vanes to our customers.

Each Weather Vane includes your choice of either:

With NSEW Directionals
Denninger Westervelt Banner with NSEW Directionals
  • Copper and brass weathervane ornament
  • Pair of copper globes
  • Cast brass NSEW directionals
  • Solid stainless steel rod painted black (or to upgrade to a brass sleeve covering add $75)
This is the traditional and most popular set-up for weather vanes.
OR
With a Large Globe
Denninger Westervelt Banner Weather Vane with Globe
  • Copper and brass weathervane ornament
  • One large impressive copper globe
  • Solid stainless steel rod painted black (or to upgrade to a brass sleeve covering add $75)

This style was popular from the 1700's right up to the Victorian era, and is also very striking with contemporary vanes.

Each Weather Vane comes with a standard stainless steel rod suitable for Mounting Diagram A or B:

Mounting Diagram #1
Diagram A - Headblock only

Traditional mounting of a weather vane into the solid headblock of a cupola, tower, turret or gazebo, or into the ridgepole of a roof.


This is the "old fashioned" traditional way of mounting a weather vane. It is still suitable today for smaller vanes up to 36" wide. Our basic 28 1/2" rod allows for at least 8" - 9" of rod to be wedged and caulked into a solid headblock or ridgepole, and 16" - 20" of rod exposed above the apex of roof.

Mounting Diagram #4
Diagram B - Headblock & Brace

A preferred traditional mount into the solid headblock of a cupola, tower, turret or gazebo, or into the ridgepole of a roof using a brace for extra strength.

Prepare your roof ahead with this headblock and brace system, for an easy and very secure mount. This mount is suitable for any size weather vane. Our basic 28 1/2" rod allows for at least 8" - 9"of rod inside the roof, and 16" - 20" of rod exposed above the apex of the roof. A nail is used to pin the rod to the brace. Larger sized vanes will need proportionally heavier and longer rods.

NOTE:
Installation may vary with each building.
It is very important to us that you are able to properly mount your weathervane
so you can enjoy it for generations to come.
