The Weather vane of Gabriel blowing his horn, was made for the People’s Medothiest Church, in Newburyport Massachusetts. It is about five feet high and combines a tubular copper horn with a glided iron figure. It was fabicated in 1840 by Gould and Hazlett, of Boston, a fact that came to light years later when a paper stuffed into the horn was discovered by workers refurnishing the weather vane. The watercolor rendered by Lucille Gloria Chabot, form which the 1965 five cent us stamp was copied, it is in the collection of the Index of American Design in the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.
