Copper flying pig weathervane measurements

This flying pig copper verdigris weathervane features a winged pig that has been professionally aged to a charming copper Verdigris patina. It is an artistic take on the “pigs may fly”, “pigs might fly” or “when pigs fly” phrases that are part of popular culture. This is a tongue in cheek weathervane because it does indeed show that pigs can fly and it will be an interesting feature and talking point

Flying or winged pigs are in popular culture, some good examples include the character Pigasus in the Wizard of Oz. The Texas AirHogs baseball team used the slogan “Where Hogs fly” in advertising, Pink Floyd had a flying pig on their Animals album, pigs featured heavily in the popular Angry Birds game and a Simpsons episode features a flying pig

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)


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

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

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


• 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, the copper over time has naturally aged to a Verdigris 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

The Verdigris weathervanes are pure copper that is naturally aged outside at our workshop\yard to develop a lovely natural aged green Verdigris patina. We have many weathervanes aging at different stages on a staggered schedule and many batches become available for sale at several points in the year. All age at different rates and no two look completely the same so it creates a stunning individual weathervane that has a magnificent aged and traditional appearance
