Description

Copper whale weathervane (Large) measurements

This is a stunning whale weathervane handcrafted from pure copper. It is a big and imposing piece with stunning detail, the tail, body shape and fins have good proportions and definition which make it look life like. The whale rotates in the wind to point toward the directional arrows to show which way the wind is blowing. It is perfect for those that love whales or nautical items and is great functional feature

The whale weather vane design resembles a Sperm whale quite closely. Sperm whales have the biggest brains on Earth and are the World's largest toothed predators. Moby Dick was a true story about an enraged sperm whale which slammed into and destroyed a whaling vessel leaving 21 crew abandoned 3000 miles out in open ocean

Weathervane Rod

The weathervane rod that fits into the bracket is 19.5mm diameter steel tubing that is treated with a durable exterior black powdercoat paint

Standard Bracket

Each weathervane is supplied with a standard 125mm (5 inch) eaves bracket. Other brackets and fixings are available (see Brackets & Fixings tab for more details)

Features

• Easy to assemble and install (including step by step instructions)

• Includes everything you need to construct the weathervane: Steel rod, NSEW directionals, copper globes and weathervane figure

• Exclusive Single Point Contact design allows the weathervane to spin freely in the wind

Construction

Copper: The weathervane designs are handcrafted from pure copper and brazed. Brazing may be visible on some designs but doesn't tend to lessen the beauty of the lovely copper weathervane design. Globes and spacers are also made from pure copper, copper over time naturally ages to a Verdigris patina. To preserve the polished finish a lacquer spray can be used to delay the onset of the natural patina

Brass: Cast brass is used for the NSEW cardinal points on the range of copper weathervanes

Steel: Rods and brackets to mount the copper weathervanes are made from steel. The steel is treated with a durable exterior black powdercoat paint. The finish should be good for a reasonable amount of time out in the elements but in time if the steel rods and brackets weather they can be painted with an exterior metal paint such as Hammerite which restores the finish and will help preserve and extend the life of the fittings. Clear mastic can also be used on any joints for example where the rod is inserted and secured into the bracket to seal and further weatherproof and prolong the life of the steel bracket and rod
