It doesn't take an eagle eye to recognize timeless quality! Like the majestic bird itself, you'll be nothing less than proud to see this gorgeous Handcrafted Copper Smithsonian Eagle Weathervane grace the roof or cupola atop your home, barn, garage or shed.
Our version of the classic Americana symbol shows-off expert craftsmanship and intricate detail, from the bird's fierce expression to the fine feathered features and intricately sculpted talons. This work of outdoor art has been copied, but never surpassed in terms of quality design and artistry. A unique plaque identifies the eagle weathervane as being inspired and licensed by the Smithsonian Institute.
Since colonial times, weathervanes have been displayed on America's public buildings, rural barns and homes, providing decoration as well as vital information to help farmers manage crops. After the Revolutionary War, popular weathervanes featured patriotic themes and symbols of freedom. The federal eagle was especially favored, and it remains a beloved symbol of pride and patriotism today.
To ensure long-lasting beauty, highly skilled artisans fashion this standard-size eagle weathervane with handcrafted figures, directionals and spacers made of pure polished copper and brass. Copper is the material of choice for weather ornaments due to its beauty, strength, workability and resistance to weather and corrosion. Over time, polished copper develops a lovely natural patina.
A durable assembly rod ensures years of maintenance-free function. Measurements are for the figure only; add 20" to the overall height to accommodate spacer balls, directionals and rod. Adjustable design fits any roof pitch. Assembly required; easy-to-follow instructions included. Roof and eve mount sold separately. Made in USA.
