|Snake Weathervane?Whirligig||Here is a unusual antique vintage folk art carved wood snake that appears to have been used as a weathervane directional or on some type of whirligig but I have no way to know for certain what it was made for, there is a 3/8 drilled hole section about midway reinforced with a steel strap piece that looks like a rod would go through and has a large round hole also near the center that is also painted inside for reasons unknown to me and measures head to tail about 27-1/4 long x 1 thick, it has been suggested the piece was originally never painted and that the paint had been added at some later point in time but the paint doesn't look like any recent addition and exhibits a fair amount of natural patina, the eyes are some type of tacks but do not match one another and one appears to be brass, there is a another steel enforced piece towards the head area but there doesn't appear to have any repaired breaks, there is some wood wear and loss on one side but nothing that would effect the piece overall and just gives the piece more folk art appeal to me anyway, judging from the steel and wood surface it appears the piece may have been made for outside use and exhibits a decent patina, it was suggested it could have also been a piece to a carnival game or similar use but overall it looks great and sits perfect on it's side for display, acquired from a central Indiana estate in Carroll County, Indiana.|

|Rooster W/V from a Quebec Barn||Up for sale this gorgeous vintage weathervane.
Double sided, made of painted tin, and has steel base & rod.
Nice rooster, gorgeous colors, great primitive look!
Guaranteed old, not a repro. Square nuts mount. I would say it dates from the 1940s.
I found it in an old barn in rural central Quebec. Those were typically seen on many Quebec farm roofs many years ago.
Most of them were hand made, people could not afford the "fancier" manufactured ones. We don't see them anymore.
I think this survivor was removed from the roof many years ago. There was a huge pile of junk on it, and it was so dirty.
For some reason, it may have been exposed to the elements on one side more than the other. Maybe the rod was jammed and not rotating for years, or it was sitting against a wall for very long. You can see the paint is flaked and dry on one side, and "cleaner looking" on the other.
Anyway, this hand-made piece of art is unique and was probably made by the farmer himself.
The rooster measures about 21" long by 13½" (at tallest points). With the rod it is 18" at its longer point.
When it is on the wood base, it is 19¾" tall.
As you can see, the legs are missing. Probably gone years ago too.

This parrot is cut from metal and retains original green paint and finish. The eye area is hand hammered to provide some definition. There is a small break around where the tail starts to form.
