PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Weathervanes are believed to have been invented by the Greek astronomer Andronicus in 48 B.C, developing over time they became more ornamental and this charming black powder-coated mild steel design recalls early 20th century examples. In Britain it was common practice to tie strings or cloth to the tops of buildings to see which way the wind was blowing. Later, banners became a popular ornament, from which 'vane' is derived from the Old English 'fana' meaning banner or flag. The common practice of adding a cockerel stemmed from the 9th century papal decree that churches should display the bird on their steeples or domes as a symbol of St Peter. Church weathervanes were decorated with the cockerel and the motif was then widely adopted. This weathervane can be attached to a post, finial or other structure with minimal assembly, although the fixings to attach to your location are not supplied.

It is very flimsy and I'm afraid the first strong wind we have it will buckle so I have to think of a spot where it is protected ,not what I wanted to do ,cause it needs the wind to work. The woodpecker that I bought at the same time is the same quality so no stars today.
We apologise for the disappointment with the quality of the items you purchased. We appreciate your understanding and the opportunity to address your concerns. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. Kind regards, Alice.
