This is an interesting weathervane that was termed a "revolving scroll" in one of the old weather vane makers' catalogs. In our version, the center section that revolves is gilded on alternate sides, and thus creates a sparkling effect when it spins in the sun. The spears which form the tail are swell-bodied, but other parts of the scroll section could be swell-bodied as well.

Denninger weather vanes are created one-at-a-time.
Each Denninger Weather Vane is an important piece
This style was popular from the 1700's right up to the Victorian era, and is also very striking with contemporary vanes.
Diagram A - Headblock only
(Old diagram #1)
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.
Diagram B - Headblock & Brace
(Old diagram #4)
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" brass 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.
