Antique weathervane - Heraldic Horse

MARC KITCHEN-SMITH
A 19th century weathervane, consisting of a cast iron 'lance' surmounted by a cast brass finial with a copper directional flag. The copper flag has a pierced cut-out design of a heraldic horse's head. The top end of the cast iron lance stem has two bands of brass around it, which act as 'bushes' for the finial to rotate freely when blown by the wind

The finial and flag have layers of old gilt paint, whilst the lance stem has remnants of old black paint. There is a 38cm section of iron that continues below the base of the stem which would allow the weathervane to be secured. Total height of vane (including the aforementioned 38cm iron section) is 158cm. Width of cast iron stem base is 15cm.

Dimensions: 

  • H: 120cm (47.24in)
  • W: 45cm (17.72in)

Period: 

c.1870

Marc has been successfully dealing in decorative antiques for over 15 years, fuelled by his lifelong passion for artefacts of the past. His workshop, a converted Methodist Sunday School, is located on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall.

He successfully mixes styles and periods to create his own unique collection of ‘delightful objects’. Good design, craftsmanship, colour and an age-worn patina all play their part in his discerning approach to buying. His selection of stock is often based on its aesthetic appeal rather than its age, and he loves to find items that have a story to tell.

Visits to Marc’s workshop and stores can be arranged by appointment.
