Tell me about your weathervane

July 12, 2019

My garage has a cupola on it and it is crying out for a weathervane. I love the one that is a flying pig. I’m trying to decide whether I want a “ full body” one or one that is flat. I also need to choose a finish. Many are shiny copper but I’m afraid it might age in a funny way. I’ve seen copper downspouts that get weird stripes on them.

what do you have And recommend , or not. Should I get the directional? That’s the NEWS letters that show the wind direction. What finish? How is it mounted on the cupola? Any advice? I have to decide on a size, too.

Here are links to some I’m considering. which do you like?

Small pig

Full body pig

Smiley pig

Ugly but shows patina finish
