Faneuil Hall Grasshopper Weathervane Conservation

About

Faneuil Hall Marketplace – Boston, MA

1991

 

Robert and his team conserved and re-gilded the famous grasshopper weathervane that sits atop the cupola of Boston’s Faneuil Hall in 1991 while the Hall was being renovated. The work was completed in our studio, and before being reinstalled, the weathervane was exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts. The sculpture was created by Shem Drowne and installed in 1742. It also acts as a time capsule.
