Antique Blackhawk Weathervane

Harris and Company, Boston Mass

Circa Late 19th Century: This classic 26" Harris and Company Blackhawk weathervane from Boston MA is constructed of molded copper but for its zinc ears. The vane is 19 1/2" tall mounted on its museum stand and has an appealing surface. Two bullet hole repairs are evident on the mane under close inspection, and there are some minor age appropriate indentations. The conditon, patina, and originality of this handsome 19th century Boston MA weathervane from one of the premier manufacturers of its day is absolutely superb. The 26" size highly desirable because it can fit just about anywhere in the house and still make quite a statement. This example of an antique American weathervane in original surface shows perfect age and patina on this handsome running horse and the aesthetics are perfect. The weathervane is modeled after Blackhawk (1833-1856), an infamous trotter who sired 1,722 foals, including the storied Ethan Allen.
