NOW SOLD

 

A rare full-bodied English weathervane cockerel, modelled in zinc and copper. A superb example created for a property in Cornwall in the late 19th century.

 

The metalwork has now acquired a beautiful natural patina from years of being exposed to the natural elements. The remnants of crusty paintwork shows that it was originally realistically rendered as a farmyard rooster. Some historic dents, and one side is missing the wattle beneath the beak.

 

It is very unusual to see a weathervane cockerel of this type to have been modelled with both legs, rather than a single pole beneath the body. In this case the bird has both its legs with spurs, its claws firmly gripping a perch. A stunning piece of English folk art

New steel supportive base. Height of cockerel from perch is 65cm.
