Raccoon Weathervane with Berries

Raccoon with Berries Weather Vane


This Raccoon Weathervane, (Procyon lotor), is one of our very early designs. The customers who commissioned this piece for their garden simultaneously commissioned our Frog and Dragonfly Weathervane. Weathervanes are lovely in landscaping, and sometimes a superior location for your viewing pleasure.

Because this is such an early creation for West Coast Weather Vanes, if you are interested in a raccoon weather vane, we will update the design to meet our current technical standards and abilities at no extra charge.

As pictured here the raccoon is crafted of copper in swell bodied style, with distinct tooling to mimic its fur and bushy tail. Glass eyes give it a realistic look, particularly when the sun glints through. The berry plant is fabricated in silhouette style with brass leaves, copper stems and copper berries. As with all our weathervanes, this Raccoon Weather Vane can be personalized with the addition of optional gold leafing, a change in stance, or the plant it is enjoying. Because all of our vanes are made to order, we are happy to discuss any individual changes you are interested in seeing.

The raccoon (sometimes spelled as racoon) is also known as the common raccoon, North American raccoon, northern raccoon and colloquially as coon. Raccoons are a medium-sized mammal native to North America. As a result of escapes and deliberate introductions in the mid-20th century, raccoons are now also distributed across the European mainland, the Caucasus region and Japan. Their original habitats are deciduous and mixed forests, but due to their adaptability they have extended their range to mountainous areas, coastal marshes, and even urban areas, where some home owners consider them to be pests.
