Dog Weathervane – French Mastiff (Dogue De Bordeaux)

French Mastiff (Dogue De Bordeaux) Weather Vane


This French Mastiff Weathervane was commissioned as a birthday and anniversary gift from a wife to her husband. She also ordered* (It was two gifting occasions, after all!) our Walking White Tailed Deer Weathervane. Both vanes were to be mounted on the barn/garage. The French Mastiff was to be mounted atop their three-car garage and and the White Tailed Deer atop a cupola mid-way on the ridge of their barn. They kindly sent pictures of the vanes installed (which you can see above), with the note below:

“Hi Liz; We finally got our weathervanes up! They are amazing, thank you so much for the great workmanship!! The mastiff is spot on! And my husband loves the deer! Thank you!”

The dog is also a composite portrait of three of their beloved dogs. These customers sent several excellent pictures for us to work from. Because all of our weather vanes are made to order, we enjoy the added option of personalizing our vanes to be portraits when requested. The customers have had both male and female French Mastiff’s over the years, so we made their dog gender neutral. For this mirror image copper sculpture piece, our master artisans used Swell Bodied techniques, making the fine musculature and skin folds very real looking. Gold leafing was requested for the iconic white chest marking of a French Mastiff. There is an inscription on the horizontal tube and it is capped with ‘Lucky Pennies’ from important dates in the family’s life.

*All of our customers enjoy a 10% discount on future orders, but when your first order is for two weathervanes you enjoy the 10% discount on both! The discount is applied at the time of the final payment.
