Dog Weathervane – Retriever, Curly Coated, Standing

Curly Coated Retriever Weather Vane


This copper Curly Coated Retriever Dog Weathervane is a favorite. Our artists do the careful work of creating fur textures with their set of personally designed hammers. This curly, close cropped fur was a challenge that required a new hammer be created! The sculpture piece is crafted in swell bodied style and has glass eyes. Eye color and optional gilding in gold or palladium are determined at the time the order is placed.

You can further personalize your vane by providing us pictures to help us replicate the stance and stature of your dog in a portrait piece. And you may choose to add a collar, or collar and tag, both of which can be inscribed with names, dates, or brief statements.

The Curly Coated Retriever (often referred to as a Curly) is an intelligent, friendly dog originally bred for upland bird and waterfowl hunting. The tallest of the retrievers, it is easily distinguishable by the mass of tight curls covering his body. Curly Coated Retrievers were developed as upland game hunters and waterfowl retrievers in England and were recognized as a breed as early as 1860. Curly Coated and Wavy Coated (now known as the Flat-Coated Retriever) were the first two recognized retriever breeds.
