Weather vanes, also known as wind vanes, have been around since the first century B.C. in ancient Greece. Weather vanes were traditionally installed on tall structures of houses and barns for monitoring the breezes. To provide balance, the point of the weather vane is usually tapered at one end. A detailed rooster weathervane will be available in the upcoming Susie & Richie Burmann Collection of Americana auction, presented by New Haven Auctions.
Of many available Oriental rugs, a featured Serapi rug decorated with traditional patterns stands out. Originally from the village of Serab, Serapi rugs are characterized by loosely spaced geometric designs. A 19th-century Serapi carpet will be presented in this sale. The collection also features an array of furniture, including a Queen Anne tiger maple highboy. The antique furniture extends back to the 1780s.
