What a fabulous primitive Americana, vintage piece for horse racing lovers! It's in fine working condition and if you spin the front the horse truly gallops!
I don't know much about this piece but I remember my mother having a special mount made for this whirligig in the 1980's. She collected art and primitives and this was one of her favorites. It looks like the unsigned Alvin Hall! Whirligig part is older than the base.It has some paint peeling from the "duckpond" and the jockeys face on one side plus a few other weathered areas but that's perhaps why it's called the weathe rvane, no? Nonetheless, it looks very beautiful for a primitive, handcrafted piece and for its old age! It's all wood with metal rivets and wire. Its 21 high x 18 with the base.
This is a fragile, nonreturnable item that I will pack with extra care. Happy to send a video of the movement.
