Cast iron horses of this elegant stylized form have been attributed to the Rochester Iron Works in Rochester, New Hampshire for many years, but diligent research has turned up no record of a firm of that name nor of any iron works in Rochester or any other New Hampshire community known to have made weathervanes. While its name and location remain a mystery, the company that created this vane offered identically shaped horses and roosters in two sizes; all of the vanes have molded, two-part cast iron bodies and sheet iron tails. The example is the smaller of the two sizes.
