Description: 
In 1867 Leonard Cushing, a civil engineer who managed a machine shop in a watch factory, and Stillman White, one of his machinists, purchased a weathervane business from the Estate of Alvin Jewell. They expanded the line of offerings and, under the name of Cushing and White, became synonymous with quality copper weathervanes. In 1872, White sold his share of the business to Cushing, who brought his sons into the partnership and continued on as L. W. Cushing and Sons until 1933. This Goddess of Liberty weathervane was patented in 1865, possibly by Jewell, and was available in a variety of sizes—up to sixty inches tall—in Cushing’s catalogues.
