Lot details

An unusual cast bronze sheet copper and cast iron weathervane

circa 1860

The bronze crowned lion and crowned cast iron bust of a man surmounting this piece would suggest that it was originally situated by a building with some form of Royal connection such as the palace of Westminster or perhaps an Oxford or Cambridge college.
