Several late 19th century American weathervane manufacturers published illustrated catalogues featuring setter weathervanes similar to the example offered here. W. A. Snow of Boston also advertised a thirty-four inch setter weathervane in their 1880 catalogue for $25.00 (Miller, The Art of the Weathervane, (Exton, PA, 1984), p. 9). Harris & Company, also of Boston, competed directly with Snow in their similarly sized and priced setter weathervane, Model No. 37 (Miller, p. 154). Bridgewater, Massachusetts weathervane manufacturer H. L. Washburn and Company made a setter weathervane as early as 1890; its descendant company, Washburn Weathervane Company, continued the form as late as 1928 (see Miller, pp.14 and 56). The 1893 illustrated catalogue of J. W. Fiske and Company, New York City, shows a thirty-three inch setter at $25.00 as model No. 344. (see American Historical Catalogue, J.W. Fiske 1893 Copper Weathervanes, Bannerets, Lightning Rods, Stable Fixtures. (Princeton: 1971), p. 25).
