Nantucket Sperm Whale Whirligig - SOLD
Nantucket Sperm Whale Weather Vane Whirligig, having slender hand-whittled flukes with great graceful curve, and carved teeth. The flukes are free to spin with the wind. Appears to be from the late 19th Century, so earlier than the iconic lincoln Ceely's whirligigs. Note there is charismatic chip to the tip of one fluke. In original black paint.
4 ¼ in H x 16 ½ in L x ¾ in W
