A true working example of a late 19th Century zinc weathervane in the form a rooster. With its original gold gilt paint still intact this makes this object quite rare as usually the gold gilt has completely weathered away. Displayed on a bespoke wrought iron stand which showcases this artifact perfectly as a centrepiece decorative object.

What Our Customers Say
We tried to look in a few stores before my colleague directed me to The House of Antiques in London.
The lighting that I needed for our new store had to be different and unique to showcase our window display. The item I purchased was a one off and looks amazing in our shop window.
A pleasure to deal with and very cool things if you’re looking for that unique item.A Rosse
