Lot Essay

A closely related model features in an early twentieth-century catalogue of J.W. Fiske and most likely illustrates a vane made by the company in the late nineteenth century (J.W. Fisk Iron Works, Copper Weather Vanes (New York, 1921), p. 22). For an example attributed to the Fiske company and dated to circa 1885, see Sotheby's, New York, Sculptural Fantasy: The Important American Folk Art Collection of Stephen and Petra Levin, 10 October 2019, lot 10.
