Designed to Last

Black Fox Metalcraft take pride in the quality of their work. All outdoor metalwork is electroplated with zinc before the powdercoat finish is baked on, so you know that no matter what the British weather does, your weathervane or sign is as protected as it can be.

Black Fox Metalcraft is run by Jenny and David in the Scottish Borders. They have 3 year old twin daughters and a Border Collie.

Our Story

Testimonials

Absolutely perfect.  A
superb product from a very efficient craftsmen lead, small, English engineering company.  Highly delighted.  Will send a picture when (and if ) the sky returns to blue instead of black.  Thank you very much.

design!

Ed Muncie

I have at last got
the weathervane fixed onto the gable end of my bungalow  and I am extremely pleased with it. The workmanship is of a high standard and the design
is very effective.

James Reynolds

My parents received the weathervane yesterday and absolutely love
it!!! It´s perfect! Thank you!

Sally Davies

Just wanted to thank you both so much for our sign.  We are absolutely delighted with it. We knew it would be good but not that good. It's perfect!

Jo & Andrew Briggs

Just to let you know that our oak tree weathervane has safely arrived and I am so thrilled with it! It was very well packed too and it really has been a pleasure dealing with your company. Nothing was too much trouble.
