This traditional Black Forest weather house can be wall mounted or table stand.
This is how a weather house works:
The female figurine comes out of the house when the weather is sunny and dry, while the male figurine comes out to indicate rain. In fact, a weather house functions as a hygrometer embellished by folk art. The male and female figures ride on a balance bar, which is suspended by a piece of catgut or hair. The gut relaxes or shrinks based on the humidity in the surrounding air, relaxing when the air is wet and tensing when the air is dry. This action swings one figure or the other out of the house depending on the humidity.
A nice gift for any occasion.
