Shooter with Labrador weathervane
Shooter and Lab weathervane handcrafted by Chris Clarke, a traditional blacksmith with over 20 years experience of producing beautiful, high quality ironwork.
Weathervanes have been around for hundreds of years and are a traditional symbol of British countryside life.
Traditionally weathervanes have been mounted on the gable end of a house, garage or other solid structure. This weathervane is supplied complete with a gable end mounting and all bolts and plugs needed to easily install.
We balance our weathervanes on knife edges in the making, and they rotate on a free running, single ball bearing. They are finished in a high quality, weatherproof black gloss produced locally in North Yorkshire. All of this results in a weathervane that will work accurately and trouble free, and last a lifetime.
With regards to size, a medium vane (our most popular size) measures 21″ (54cm) across the cardinal points and is approximately 25″ (63cm) tall from the wall mounting to the bottom of the motif. This does not include the height of the motif which of course will vary depending on the design. The offset from the wall is 3.5″ (39cm)
Chris cuts all our weathervanes by hand and they are fully welded, with no flat packs to screw together. The vane comes well packaged in a large box containing 3 pieces – the upright stem, the NSEW and the motif, plus bolts and screws for fitting. We include an instruction sheet in the box which explains the simple procedure to install the vane.
