This Trotting Fox weathervane
was commissioned by a customer of ours in New Jersey. When in the process of
making the decision to purchase the property on which they built their home and
farm, they were visiting the location one day and saw a beautiful vixen coming
trotting out of the grasses in a field. She was carrying a single feather in her
mouth. Seeing her there was the final factor that convinced them to purchase the
land. In her honor, they commissioned this Fox weathervane (see thumbnail
photo of this famous lady above left, top). The owners have been careful stewards of the
property and her offspring still reside happily on the property.
Their Fox weathervane was
completed in 1999 and had optional gilding added to the muzzle, chest, belly,
tail tip and feather. Just recently, she sent us a photo of her vane and you can
see what a lovely patina it has developed over the years.
