Vintage Lightning Rod, Twisted Copper, Ruby Glass Wind Arrow 69"



This vintage lightning rod features a 68.75" twisted copper rod with a beautiful Victorian wind arrow. The rod shows a beautiful, light green copper patina, suggesting it is composed of copper or a copper-alloy. It is supported by a tripod stand with mounting holes in the "feet" of each leg.
The lightning rod does not come with a glass insulator, however, the wind arrow has an inset, etched Ruby Glass "flag". The rod also has the original 8.5" bayonet-style point, or "spire".

Condition: Good for age and use. The rod, stand and wind arrow show allover patina or surface oxidation, but are sturdy and complete with no evidence of cracks or repairs. The rod has a "wave", or curve about 1/4 from the base that could be straightened if desired (as seen in photographs). The glass has some minor edge chips, but no cracks or large chips.
