Vintage Cast Iron OLD ROOSTER WEATHER VANE Wind Vein! - eBay (item 310068080244 end time Jul-22-08 19:08:28 PDT)
This 17-inch high cast iron rooster weather vane used to sit atop a bird house. It has three leaf-shaped legs, the four directions, and a proud chicken standing on an arrow. I see no maker's mark.
It was assembled wrong when I photographed it. The half circles form a ball above and below the N, S, E and W letter bars. They were reversed and now nestle into each other better. The direction arms unit can be turned, but not as easily as the rooster and arrow which spin easily.
