NEW YORK – Once an essential tool for agriculture and travel, the weathervane is now a dignified emblem of Americana, uniquely linking the U.S. to the ancient Greeks, Vikings and even the Pope. It’s believed that the earliest recorded weathervane, honouring the Greek god Triton, stood atop Athens' Tower of the Winds. To the ancients, the winds carried divine powers, but it was Pope Nicholas I who declared that a cockerel weathervane should adorn every church. Given the weathervane’s strong presence in our Americana Week sales, we selected fifteen that are true architectural ornaments.
