Thanks for your help. I'll just have to start calling around to some fab shops. I already have one in hand that had fallen down and is pretty well damaged but it gives a good idea of how and what it is made from (not copper). Thanks for your help.

With out a better picture or a sample, its hard to say how it was made. It could be lead or tin maybe copper, but I would recommend a custom copper shop to do the work. It not typical flat sheet metal work depending on whats up there and how it was done, they may be pressed pcs of metal which most fabrication shop don't do. Let me know if you need any help www.slateaffair.com.

Joe is right. Just about any sheet metal shop can make it if you bring one down for them. If you have any problems, our Columbus office does a bit of work in Ft. Wayne. You can call Durable Slate at 800-666-7445 or go to the contact page at www.durableslate.com

Any good local sheet metal shop should be able to duplicate them if you can bring them one off the roof.

I have decorative finials at the outer edge of each gable on my 1890 slate roof. A couple have gone missing and/or damaged and I would like to replace them, but the only replacement finials I can find are the tall pointy ones. Is there another name for this longer, scrolled finial and does anyone know where I can find them? Hopefully the picture is good enough to get an idea of what I'm talking about.
