1990? Copper, brass, and wood weathervane artpiece.  The rabbit is copper, 14" x 5".  The turtle is brass, 5" x 2".  They are mounted on a wooden peg, and the peg is mounted on a wooden base.  A brass plate on the base is marked "Tortoise and the Hare, Aesop, Circa 600 B.C."  $16.50 from Donna Peterson, Puta Gorda, FL, March, '01.

Here is a contender for the most surprising find in this collection!  It is not really a weathervane, but an art-object after the fashion of a weathervane.  Future critics should ponder why one piece is copper and the other brass. Click on the image to see an enlarged version.
