Crisply Detailed Rooster Weathervane with Outstanding Surface .....SOLD
Northeast America, likely J.W. Fiske, New York, ca. 19th century. Terrific detail and modeling, retaining a complex and highly desirable dry surface of worn paint revealing gilding and verdigris, the unique, authentic surface a product of its in-use weathering. The large feathers of the arrow are especially bold and balance the design. A useful size at about 22 inches high, 24 long, and 3 deep is sizeable enough to have a strong presence yet small enough to be placed in many locations. Terrific condition with expected minor seam separations. Happy to email high res photos. Long time private New England collection, purchased some 40+ years ago from Alexander Acevedo.
