does anyone know anything about weather vanes

    Hi Don, I understand your frustration. The problem is that there are probably 100 repros for every 1 real weather vane, so people often dismiss them. Since you've got provenance, yours must be correct, as you wouldn't have found a reproduction on an old barn years ago! Tell me where you live, and I'll tell you who to take it to. Gary

    Don, I suggest you call the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in KC and ask to speak to the General Manager, Bruce. Tell him that I suggested that you call him to ask him to put you in touch with a dealer at his Mall that is able to authenticate your weather vane. There are probably 500 antique dealers in that mall, and Bruce should be able to identify the one best able to evaluate yours. Good luck, and let us know what you find out. Thanks. Gary
