Wee Pig Weathervane
Attributed to L. W. Cushing & Sons, Waltham, Massachusetts, circa 1872-1900 (illustrated in Cushing catalogue 1883). Copper body and ears with verdigris surface. Cast zinc head and curly tail. Diminutive size at just 17 inches length, height 11 inches. Superb surface. Far fewer pig weathervanes were made in the 19th century than eagles, horses, and cows, so relatively few authentic examples survive today. The little size is especially desirable. Excellent genuine period condition. Custom-made stand. See The Art of the Weathervane, Steve Miller, pages 42-43 for a Cushing example of the same form. Also see Incollect: American Furniture And Americana Shine At The 2015 Winter Antiques Show: David Schorsch and Eileen M. Smiles for another. Provenance: Private New England collection..
