We make this beautiful copper Friendship Sloop Weathervane the old fashion way by hand hammering, cutting, forming and shaping this into a sailboat weathervane. We use 24-gauge copper to form two pieces of beautiful artwork together to make this amazing Weathervane and it will fit all our Cupolas.
Each of our Friendship Sloop Weathervane are balanced so they will point into the wind to show weather direction. If you have a north wind blowing the weathervane will be pointing north straight into the wind. It is important to know that trees, heavy brush can cause wind swirling to the sailboat weathervane which will still head into the wind – just that the wind may be coming from different directions when Mother Nature makes this decree.

Since we use real copper to make our weathervanes – each weathervane will tarnish quickly and will turn brown, black and then a patina green. This is natural and unless treated by the customer is going to happen. Mother Nature does what Mother Nature wants, and she loves her Patina Copper.

Special Note about our Handmade Weathervanes:
Each of our handmade weathervanes are Made to Order. Each weathervane is hand hammered into a mold that we have produced with our own weathervane artwork. The weathervane is cut out of the copper sheet and then soldered together. Final touches for making the weathervane include cutting, sanding, and putting a weathervane tube into the weathervane figure and to make a balanced turning point. We are proud to say that all our staff to include our retail folks have designed at least one weathervane or more since becoming part of our amazing family-based company.
