PREFACE

In compiling this (the sixth) edition of our Illustrated Catalogue of Weather Vanes, Bannerets and Finials, we have endeavored to include appropriate designs for Churches, Public Buildings, Residences, Stables, Barns, &c, &c, thus making it the most complete work issued; we are, however, continually adding new and original designs to our stock.

Our Vanes are madeEntirely of CopperandGilded with the Finest Gold Leaf,will keep bright, will not corrode, and are perfect indicators of the wind's direction.

The letters and balls are well gilded, the spires are of wrought iron, with hardened steel spindles for the Vanes to turn upon.

Our Copper Eagles,from the largest to the smallest, forVanes or Architecturalpurposes, are full-bodied, the wings of double thickness, and are a perfect representation of theAmerican Eagle.

The Price of each Vane includes a Wrought Iron Spire with points of Compass, Gilt Letters and Balls.

Vanes of any design or size, to order on short notice and at reasonable rates.

We would caution our customers and the public against being deceived by Vanes which are now being made, (copied after our original designs) which are manufactured ofSheet Zinc and covered with a thin solution of Copper with Zinc Tubing,unlike our Vanes, which are made of Sheet Copper and Brass Tubing.

Special attention given to the erection of Lightning Rods, in connection with cur Vanes, Crestings, Finials and Terminals. All the varieties of Galvanized Iron, Copper covered and Solid Copper Rods with Fixtures, furnished on short notice, (see page 99.)

With the view of simplifying the ordering of our Vanes, please describe each design by the name, &c, given in this book; always specifying theFigure Number,size of Vane, and number of this catalogue (No. 6); also, be careful to give full and particular shipping directions.

Experienced persons will be sent to receive instructions, to give practical information and take orders.

It will be our endeavor to ship all goods with promptness, and careful attention is given to packing.

We make our grateful acknowledgments to our customers and friends for past favors, and trust to merit their future patronage.

Respectfully

A B. & W. T. WESTERVELT.
