Vintage Sheet and Wrought Iron Weathervane, Whale on Harpoon & Directionals’
Marshfield, Massachusetts - SOLD


Vintage Sheet and Wrought Iron Weathervane, Whale on Harpoon & Directionals’ 
Marshfield, Massachusetts, entire view

A small and wonderful silhouette of whale in old black paint…mounted on harpoon head
with flared ferrule continuing to standard; chisel cut directional. Purportedly from the tool
house built by Henry J. Tilton of Marshfield, Massachusetts. Henry was born on
Chilmark, Martha’s Vineyard in 1899; died at Marshfield in 1966. Accompanying the
vane is a building permit dated 1965; to build a tool house.
(Height: 19"; width: 21"; depth: 21.75")

Henry J. Tilton was the original owner of our consignor’s house. He was the grandson of
George F. Tilton. George Tilton captained the Charles W. Morgan, which was the last
wooden whaling vessel to operate out of Chilmark, Martha’s Vineyard. The vessel is
currently on display in Mystic, Connecticut because of its historic significance.

Henry was a shop teacher at Marshfield high back in the 60’s and he made the vane as
a homage to his grandfather who had an amazing life on the sea. He ran away from
home at age 14, stowing away on a New Bedford whaler. He traveled the world whaling
for 40 years from the arctic to the equator. He achieved his greatest fame when the ship
he was on became stuck in the ice in the arctic and he walked over the ice to find help!
So, the story goes anyway... The vane was atop a copula on Henry’s tool shed which
fell into disrepair in the early 90’s and has since come down.

SOLD
