Denninger Scrolls, Banners and Arrows Weather Vanes

Denninger Double Feathered Arrow Weathervane (shown complete with cap)

Denninger Weathervanes has designed a handsome collection of period weather vanes inspired by
18th and 19th century vanes discovered in their travels and through research.
These weather vanes are made of substantially heavy copper and brass,
are well balanced and are made to last for generations.
Every vane is handcrafted one at a time by A. H. Denninger, America's foremost
blacksmith/weather vane maker, and is signed and dated.

These weather vanes will appeal to the architect, homeowner
or historian who is seeking a non-subjective design.
The Scrolls and Arrows are especially suitable for Victorian towers and turrets,
and the larger sizes for steeples and public buildings.
The Banners reflect the Primitive American, Tudor, Gothic or
Victorian eras, and can be personalized with initials, symbols, logos or dates.
A venerable one-hundred year old look is possible with Denninger's special blue-green verdigris patina.
Beautiful effects can be achieved in color and texture by adding stained, faceted and wheel-cut glass and 23k gold leaf.

Some of our most popular designs were originally
custom commissions that now bear the name of the homeowner or architect!
We invite you, too, to help design a vane which will be unique for your life and home.

Denninger Westervelt Banner Weather Vane with Globe
  • Copper and brass weathervane ornament
  • One large impressive copper globe
  • Solid brass and stainless steel rod

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


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 many years to come; so please contact us for advice before you order.
See our Mounting Diagrams for more options.

Each Weather Vane comes with a solid brass rod suitable for Mounting Diagram A or B
Mounting Diagram #1
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.

Mounting Diagram #4
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.
