Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Fox and Hound

Every Wednesday for more than two years Vincent and I have been posting photographs of weather vanes located in or near the Nutfield area (the former name for the land where Londonderry, Derry and Windham, New Hampshire are now located). Most are historically interesting or just whimsical and fun weather vanes. If you know an interesting weather vane, please send me an email or leave a comment below.

Today's weather vane was found just at a museum in Vermont. Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weather vane #143? Scroll down to see the answer....

Click to enlarge, it's easier to read!

Today's weather vane was photographed at the Stage Coach Inn Gallery a the Shelburne Museum in Vermont.  It was produced by the Cushing and White Company of Waltham, Massachusetts.  Weather vanes produced by Cushing and White, later known as the L. W. Cushing Company, have sold for thousands of dollars at auctions and by antique dealers.  Most weather vanes are by unknown artists, but a weather vane recognized as a by an established artist or manufacturer can fetch more money on the antiques circuit.
