Globe and Arrow Weathervane

Globe of Earth Weather Vane

With Gold Continents
Spun Copper Globe

This Globe and Arrow Weathervane was an interesting project. An international business ordered it for their corporate offices. Our challenge was to take the subject of a round globe and create a visually harmonious design that would actually function as a weather vane, spinning in the wind. Our solution was to incorporate a longer-than-usual arrow with a larger than normal fletching to catch the wind. On the copper tube of the arrow, the business name was inscribed.

For this piece, we had the copper globe professionally spun, then we fabricated the globe holder, attaching it at the earth’s poles. Finally, we applied gold leaf* to the globe for all of the earth’s continents. Since we make these weathervanes to individual order, we can also substitute letters or a logo in place of the continents. If you are interested, please give us a call to discuss your ideas.

For ‘Lucky Pennies,’ the decision was made to cap each end of the tube. One end has the traditional penny from the year of manufacture; the other end has the year the business was founded.

Weathervanes were first available only to royalty, then to the aristocracy. They next went into use as business signage. West Coast Weather Vanes has crafted weathervanes for many businesses, schools, and institutions. We’d love to discuss your project to represent your venture.

* Because the cost of gold leaf fluctuates frequently, it is possible that the price for this weathervane could go up or down based on current market conditions. Please verify pricing with us prior to placing your order.
