Weather vanes have been used for more than 2000 years to help man determine the changing weather and the direction of the prevailing winds. By the 18th and 19th centuries, these functional objects had become a common feature on American homes. Crafted in a variety of shapes and sizes, from flags to fish, and horses to ships; the seemingly unlimited variety of weather vane designs could boggle anyone trying to identify a craftsman or date a form. This two-volume set features high-resolution scans of 11 original weather vane manufacturers' catalogs from a private collection. Makers featured include Washburne, Fiske, Harris & Co., Jones, Mullins, Cushing, Buck, Westervelt, Mott, Snow, and Quaker City Shooting Gallery Targets. Original designs, modifications, and prices are shown. 640pp between the two volumes.
