Sparkling Vane Weathervane

This is an interesting weathervane that was termed a "revolving scroll" in one of the old weather vane makers' catalogs. In our version, the center section that revolves is gilded on alternate sides, and thus creates a sparkling effect when it spins in the sun. The spears which form the tail are swell-bodied, but other parts of the scroll section could be swell-bodied as well.

Denninger weather vanes are created one-at-a-time.
We are able to customize our designs to reflect each customer's individuality.

Each Denninger Weather Vane is an important piece of sculpture
and is handmade, signed and dated by the artist Alfred H. Denninger.


Each Denninger Weather Vane includes your choice of either:

With NSEW Directionals

  • Copper and brass weathervane ornament
  • Pair of copper globes
  • Cast brass NSEW directionals
  • Solid brass and stainless steel rod.
This is the traditional and most popular set-up for weather vanes.
With a Large Globe

  • Copper and brass weathervane ornament
  • One large impressive copper globe
  • Solid brass and stainless steel rod

This style was popular from the 1700's right up to the Victorian era, and is also very striking with contemporary vanes.

Installation may vary with each building. It is very important to us that you are able to properly mount your weathervane so you can enjoy it for many years to come; so please contact us for advice before you order.

See our Mounting Diagrams for more options.

Each Weather Vane comes with a solid brass rod suitable for Mounting Diagram A or B
Mounting Diagram #1
Diagram A - Headblock only
(Old diagram #1)
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.

Mounting Diagram #4
Diagram B - Headblock & Brace
(Old diagram #4)
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" brass 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.
