Bespoke weathervane featuring the Austin 7 Chummy of circa 1925. Created in 316 'Marine' grade stainless steel for a long corrosion resistant life.
Built to my own unique design and not available anywhere else, the Austin design was completed by hand and includes details that help to capture it's quirky essence. The finished design was laser cut from 3 mm thick stainless steel sheet and completed by me in my own workshop.
The direction arrow features art deco inspired head and tail and the upper assembly pivots on a point contact bearing giving a smooth response in only a light breeze.
The cardinal markers feature art deco style lettering, the diameter across the cardinal arms is approx. 500 mm. The arrow measures approx. 700 mm from tip to tail and the silhouette has a wheelbase of approx. 240 mm.
The centre post is machined from solid 1/2" diameter stainless steel and extends approximately 630 mm below the cardinal arms.
The whole assembly weighs approx. 5 kg to 5.5 kg
Can be mounted direct into a hole drilled in a wooden post, pergola or ridge-board. Alternatively we can supply a simple bracket that allows the weathervane to be mounted to a vertical surface such as a gable end (see separate listing).
Custom designs also possible, contact me if you have something unique in mind.
Collection is welcome if you are nearby and would prefer.
A life long passion for vintage cars and engineering. The Austin 7 is an icon of British motoring history, the original affordable car for the people, costing £100 and being properly engineered it extinguished the hitherto successful cyclecar industry with it's success. These quirky little machines are still popular with vintage enthusiasts and in different forms can go very quickly indeed!
