In 1792 the Bald Eagle was adopted as the
symbol of courage and sovereignty for our new American nation. As an important
part of the classic revival of that period, it appealed to artists as a fine
decorative element for all media. "The eagle was the most popular
patriotic motif in an era when federal symbols were so common that the
prevailing style was called federal design", wrote Myrna Kaye in
"Yankee Weathervanes." Our Full-bodied Eagle (below left) , which is
available in many sizes, echoes the one developed by Alvin Jewell of Waltham,
MA in the 1860's - valiant and proud.
Our Federal Eagle (below right) is representative of eagle designs popular after the Revolutionary period until the mid-nineteenth century - fierce and protective. It is a reproduction of a weather vane made in Boston, MA in 1850.

In a unique customization, at a lawyer's request, we added a Q24 Quill to this E24 Eagle Weather Vane.
This style was popular from the 1700's right up to the Victorian era, and is also very striking with contemporary vanes.
Diagram A - Headblock only
Traditional mounting of a weather vane into the solid headblock of a cupola, tower, turret or gazebo, or into the ridgepole of a roof.
This is the "old fashioned" traditional way of mounting a weather
vane. It is still suitable today for smaller vanes up to 36" wide. Our
basic 28 1/2" rod allows for at least 8" - 9" of rod to be
wedged and caulked into a solid headblock or ridgepole, and 16" - 20"
of rod exposed above the apex of roof.
Diagram B - Headblock & Brace
A preferred traditional mount into the solid headblock of a cupola, tower, turret or gazebo, or into the ridgepole of a roof using a brace for extra strength.
Prepare your roof ahead with this headblock and brace system, for an easy and very secure mount. This mount is suitable for any size weather vane. Our basic 28 1/2" rod allows for at least 8" - 9"of rod inside the roof, and 16" - 20" of rod exposed above the apex of the roof. A nail is used to pin the rod to the brace. Larger sized vanes will need proportionally heavier and longer rods.
