End of the Game weathervane.
Inspired by the famous and much loved ‘Old Father Time”weathervane. Given to Lord’s in 1926 by the architect of the Grandstand, Sir Herbert Baker.
The symbolism of the figure derives from Law 16(3) of the Laws of Cricket: “After the call of Time, the bails shall be removed from both wickets.”
Many followers of the game would love to go to Lords but are not able to, Instead, however, they can have their own Father Time token just like the one at Lords. They may not have a grandstand, but they do have a house or a shed. If necessary they could place it on a post in the garden for all to see and admire.
Made of Stainless Steel this End of the Game weathervane will give years and years of enjoyment and service.
How It Works
Both the arrow and the Father Time figures revolve on a ball bearing over a Stainless Steel shaft. Well balanced and proportionally correct these Australian made weathervanes from Glenview Products actually work. The weathervane is powder coated and just as Henry Ford said, you can have any colour so long as it is black.
End of the Game Weathervane Measurements
Even though bowed down with age Old Father Time is still 375mm tall and 230mm wide as he removes the bails at the end of play.
A 700mm arrow is his cricket pitch. The directionals are 590mm long. 805mm is the total height of this famous symbol of cricket
End of the Game Installation
A stainless Steel mounting plate is available for fixing to a flat surface such as the ridge line of a metal roof or a wooden garden post. Alternatively there is a Gable Bracket for fixing to the apex of the gable (see Fixing Brackets). If you would like to order a fixing bracket to suit this product, please select from the product options above. Fixing brackets ordered with an Aussie Weathervane will not incur any additional delivery charges.
Which one ?
Gable Bracket (Stainless Steel) is used for attaching to the face of the Gable. Suitable for both Tile and Metal Roofs. Because the shaft extends down the face of the Gable, it is 200mm longer than the ridge line bracket.
Stainless Steel Mounting Plate (supplied flat with laser cut slots to allow plate to be bent to the exact pitch of the roof). Used on the roof ridge of metal roofs. Also adaptable to flat surfaces and mounting on posts.
Purchasing the suitable bracket makes installation easy and enjoyable
