Pigeon Weathervane. Pigeons are considered to be one of the most intelligent birds on the planet. They have been around for a long time, being found by archeologists to have existed in Mesopotamia as early as 3000 BC. Elvis Presly had a soft spot for pigeons and Queen Elizabeth has lofts and pigeon keepers at her Sandringham Estate. pigeon racing is quite aa sport and individual birds have been sold for huge amounts of money one recent exchange was for $132,517.oo the previous record was for $73,800.00. Soooo if you cannot afford a bird perhaps a weathervane will do.
Made of Stainless steel these black pelican weathervanes will give years and years of enjoyment and service.
The pigeon is 300mm tall and 295 from front to back. Overall height of the weathervane is730mm.
How It Works
Both the arrow and the pelican figure revolve on a ball bearing over a solid bushed stainless steel shaft. Well balanced and proportionally correct these Australian made weathervanes from Glenview Products actually work. The weathervane is powder-coated and like the early Ford motor vehicles, you can have any colour so long as it is black.
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 steel gable bracket available 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 to use ?
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.
