The Creation of Victorian Weathervanes
Victorian weathervanes often featured beautiful scrollwork and delicate lines. They were also often hiding surprise treasures. Some Victorian weathervane makers began a tradition of sealing a copper penny from the year the vane was crafted inside each weathervane. These pennies were considered to be good luck. Other craftsmen put small brass plaques or other mementos inside the sculpture piece, with these items becoming cherished keepsakes.
Antique Victorian weathervanes are now considered works of art and are highly sought after by collectors. They often fetch staggering prices at auction, from 4 to 6 figures - or more!
