Sound The Alarm! Fire Pumper Weathervane At Sotheby’s

Sotheby’s recently held an Americana themed auction titled “A New Dimension of Tradition: Important American Folk Art,” benefitting the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The copper and zinc horse-drawn fire pumper weathervane by Cushing & White had a top bid of $437,500. We are thrilled to see this beautiful weathervane, and to know it is being rightfully acknowledged as art. You can see the article about the sale and a picture of the vane here.

We pride ourselves at West Coast Weather Vanes in carrying on this fine tradition of creating American Folk Art. When we saw the pictures of this Fire Pumper Weathervane our expert artisans felt a true kinship with those who have crafted such pieces through the centuries.
