STOLEN Dolphin Weathervane, $1,000 reward

The Chatham, Massachusetts police need the help of the public in locating a stolen dolphin weathervane.  It was stolen from a private home in Chatham this month.  The weathervane is a three dimensional copper dolphin plated in 24K gold, worth about $1000.  It is about 40 inches long.

Please contact the Chatham Police Department with any information at the following numbers:
508-945-1217 or leave an anonymous tip at 508-945-TTIP (8847)

You may also call the homeowner, Tamara Bazzle, at 404-231-5953 or email

This dolphin weathervane has been on the roof of this private home in Chatham for more than 50 years.  The homeowner contacted me directly because of the Weathervane Wednesday post of this very same weathervane here on December 4, 2013.  One of my readers from the Windham, New Hampshire Historical Society sent me the original photo you see above.  I was glad to post it on my blog, and I immediately replied to the email by the homeowner to spread the news of the theft. 

Please share this via social media.  I hope she can recover this very special weathervane.

According to the homeowner, their home was built in 1916 by Joseph Lincoln, the author of many novels, stories and poems set on Cape Cod.  The architect Howard Rich designed the weathervane for the house in 1969.  It was considered a local Chatham landmark.
