In good condition

Nice copper wind-vane, depicting a rider on horseback. The design is very quirky and the proportions are to be described as caricatural. He stands on a black painted wooden base. Weight 1170 gram, height 50 cm width 45 cm
This weather-vane was acquired at an antique fair in The Hague, together with a weather-vane of similar making, but depicting a 17th century three mast ship.
The rider on horseback of this weather-vane looks a lot like the rider on horseback on Dutch silver coins, for example the so-called snaphaanschelling. Those coins were used in the 16th and 17th century.
So both weather-vanes have a 17th century look about them. If both weather-vanes were indeed made in the 17th century is the question. It is very well possible that they were made centuries later, perhaps at the end of the 19th century.

    Helaas 260% van de werkelijke verz.k. moeten betalen (mag volgens catawiki niet!?!), na een vriendelijke mailwisseling is verkoper niet bereid tot terugbetaling.

    De koper is tevreden over het kavel, over de snelheid van verzenden en over de goede verpakking. Met die verpakking alleen al ben ik ruim een uur bezig geweest. De koper is ontevreden over de kosten van verzenden. Dat is vreemd, want die kosten staan duidelijk bij het kavel vermeld, en zoals bij ieder ander zal zijn bod zijn afgestemd op die verzendkosten. Hij wilde dat ik hem € 5 betaalde, anders zou ik een negatieve recensie krijgen. Daar is een woord voor. De kartonnen munten doen in de detailhandel € 1 tot € 3 per stuk. Hij heeft nu 13,7 cent per kartonnen munt betaald, maar hij wilde eigenlijk maar 12,9 cent betalen. Daar is ook een woord voor. Die woorden mag de lezer zelf bedenken.
    Na mijn reactie heeft de koper zijn feedback over de snelle verzending en goede verpakking weggehaald...........
