Weathervanes are beautiful accents steeped in a rich history of artistic expression and practical function. With origins dating all the way back to 48 B.C., they’ve gradually shed their utilitarian beginnings to become a time-honored artform gracing homes, barns and churches to this very day. But don’t think for a moment that all weathervanes have to be picturesque roosters or the nostalgic arrows of yore. For those of you interested in something a bit less dated for your chic, modern homes, Valley Forge Cupolas has a stunning selection of modern weathervane picks for the contemporary home.
