I've been collecting these for years and thought they would look nice displayed all together. It seems like everywhere you look they tear down the old barns and put up the new pole barns and don't bother replacing the lightning rods, balls and weathervanes. Some people come over to the house and have never seen anything like this before. As of November 30, 2011 I've posted three new pictures because of some more new items added to the collection. There are 60 balls, 18 weathervanes, two white teardrop pendants and fourteen rods. There is also a directional weathervane (north,south,east,west) out of the 1800's and an acorn topper also from the 1800's. There are several weathervanes from that time period too. Some of the balls and weathervanes your looking at are rare and hard to find. Some colors are more desirable than others, just as some of the balls are more desirable to the collector than others. Hope you enjoy this collection as much as I do.
