Description

Copper flying duck weathervane (Large) measurements

The flying duck weathervane is a pure copper weathervane with excellent detail and proportions. The weathervane sculpture is of a mallard duck in flight with its wings outstretched. Small details like the feathers, beak, eyes and feet give it a realistic and lifelike look

It serves as a stunning feature piece with a functional use to tell which way the wind is blowing. It looks great in action as the duck moves effortlessly in the wind and points to one of the of the cardinal points to indicate a wind direction of either North, South, East or West

Duck weathervanes are a traditional type of weathervane and are used for multiple reasons or simply because of their beauty. One features in the garden of a home near Pevensey Marshes, perhaps the wild ducks and birds in the nearby ponds and lakes gave inspiration and meant that a duck weathervane was the most fitting feature and signifies the connection with the local area

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
