Every weathervane on this site was created at the request of a client interested in custom weathervane fabrication. Most are one-of-a-kind, All are Hand-Crafted. We use a sandbag, metalsmith hammers and vintage chasing tools from Meriden's past Silver Industry. (Our Studio, located in Meriden, CT, was once the home of the International Silver Company and was considered the Silver Capital of the world.) Because our custom weathervanes are Hand-Made no 2 will be Exactly alike. Although made from the same paper pattern they will have slight variations that may or may not be noticeable; similar to a painter painting the same picture twice. This is the nature of custom work; no 2 are identical so each one is unique.
A 25% Deposit is Required inorder to schedule your project. We provide scaled drawings of your weathervane on your structure. A way to conceptualize correct size and over-all aesthetics. When your custom weathervane is completed, we send JPGimages for your approval. Upon approval of the images we send a final invoice to you with Final payment due before shipment. Most every weathervane is wood-crated. We use UPS Ground providing the weathervane crate meets the dimension limits of UPS. If the crate is over-sized to UPS, we will schedule an ABF Motor-Freight pick-up and forward you the invoice from the shipping company. This method of transaction has worked well for us for over a decade in the business of creating custom weathervanes sent throughout the US, Great Britain and Canada. We accept Personal Checks or Pay Pal. You are always welcome to call for updates or for references.
