Crafted from copper, this gorgeous weathervane features an fox atop a powder-coated steel shaft that includes brass compass points and copper spacer balls. Although historical weathervanes were solely instruments for detecting weather changes by determining the direction of blowing wind, today weather vanes such as this are also decorative displays of culture and style. Can come in the antique or polished finish please specify when ordering. If not it will come in the pictured finish. Rust and maintence free.
