Weathervanes

Weathervanes are a traditional device used to indicate the wind direction. Weathervanes have a long history, extending way back to 48 BC when greek astronomer Andronicus created a bronze weather vane featuring the head and torso of a man and the tail of a fish. This was situated on the top of the Tower of Winds in Athens and a wand held in Triton’s hand indicated the wind direction.

Today there are many exciting weather vane designs including traditional cockerels. Take a look at our store and you will find witches, vintage cars, sailing yachts and even surfers on surfboards, all making excellent, stylish garden weather vanes. Add a weathervane to your rooftop to quickly see the wind direction and add a little distinctive style to your abode.
