The price here explains why I don't buy "art".
I don't know anything about "art", but I think somebody is dreaming.
Yea, right ! 5K and it's outside stuck in the sand !
I had one like that but it had a rooster on top instead of the T. It worked the same as the E-bay one and probably cost less than $10.00
I have items I don't want to sell, but I don't put them on eBay.
It says an engineer made it but it doesn’t say what kind of engineer... easy to duplicate nothing special and not very big, now if you could see it from the airport 2 miles from my house I might be interested.
I would say sanitation engineer...
You guys don't know what "gold" is !
An all-original generic T-era themed dealership weathervane ?
And it's ONLY five large ???
Reminds me of all the gold coins we found in the walls at my Dad's place.
At least we can't gripe about a shortage of pictures.
I made a similar one out of stuff from my junkpile. Unfortunately, I'm not an engineer so mine probably isn't worth quite as much.
If I can get deposits from 20 members, I make them up and ship them unpainted for $125.00ea good for lower 48 states. J they will look close but my design.
This is my 1914 weathervane on my shop---I paid $400 for it.Came from maine
Paul is a graduate of the Jelf posting school
Rats--when I first looked at Paul's post the image wasn't there.. Open mouth, insert foot!!!
Could it be that the one on e-bay was copied from yours and that you infact truly have the original ?
I'm sure this is a copy of mine with just enough difference to not infringe on my patent. I suppose that may make mine worth at least $5000.
I paid $400 for a solid bronze schooner weather vane for the cupola on our garage back in '03 and I thought that was a lot! Sheesh. 5 grand? Nuts!
