    Stags can be a difficult weathervane to find and this example is truly remarkable. Its bold leaping stature and amazing patina make it a stand out piece.

    This piece was created by E.G. Washburne & Co. which has been documented as the first New York weathervane manufacturer established in in 1853. Initially identified as a sign painting company, in 1864 there are documented ads describing the firm as “Manufacturers and Dealers in Emblem Signs for every Business and Profession, Block and Glass Letters, Weather Vanes, &c.” Washburne & Co. remained a popular manufacturer of weathervanes into the 20th century and was kept in the family until 1956. Since then, the company has changed ownership several times, each time retaining some of the original weathervane molds. Some of these molds are still in use today in production in New England.

    WHY WE LOVE IT: if you’ve driven around Loudoun County, I bet you have almost hit one of these. This stag, with its impressive size, will command attention anywhere you set it.
