- Antique folk art whirligigs are whimsical, wind-driven expressions of American folk art that first appeared in this country nearly 200 years ago. Traditional whirligig designs depict common characters and activities of early American rural life. Antique whirlygigs are highly prized collectibles today.
Old-timers called them comic weathervanes. The faster the wind blows, the more furiously the figures move. Some swear the resulting vibration also drives away moles.
