Hawkeye Lightning Rod With Small Trotting Horse Weathervane

Description

Lightning rods trace their history and invention to Benjamin Franklin in 1749. The premise of the invention is that lightning would be drawn to the higher metal point rather than strike the structure From the late 1800s to early 1900s lightning rods became more popular. Not only were they functional, but they also served an additional decorative purpose. If the added glass globes were broken or missing, it would indicate a lightning strike and allow the property owner to check for damages. Atop the weathervane/lightning rod is a small zinc trotting horse attached to an iron weather arrow. The pole is iron with an iron directional, plus an amber Hawkeye lightning ball with four paneled amber pendants on a wire holder. The horse atop has been repainted, but the directional has not. The weather vane has been attached to a wooden base to display with ease. This item is larger than UPS will allow. Please contact us for shipping or delivery quote. 19329-IEP
