Vintage Toggili Wooden German Weather House W/wood Knob For Sale

This beautiful, wooden TOGGILI GERMAN CHALET WEATHER HOUSE is old. It has a wooden knob on top (not the usual plastic). The thermometer is intact and working. This is complete with a blue bird on top on the wooden fence, mushroom and stone landscaping, flowers on the balcony plus a wooden and wire trough/pump. This older model also has dried plant material on the fence. The man and woman swing freely. The house is 5" long by 3" deep by 5 1/2" high. The back panel is extremely clean for its age. The engineering behind these ingenious and charming weather forecasters is a twisted stand of natural material. This twisted strand absorbs water molecules from moist, humid air. It then relaxes causing the man to come out. He represents change and rainy weather. When the surrounding atmosphere is dry, the strand shrinks and tightens up, causing the girl to come out. As in the fairer sex, she represents dry and fair weather Many of us grew up with these weather houses in our parent's home.Hang it or put it up in an airy place. When the weather is stormy, twist the knob (never pull it up) so that the man just comes out. When there is sunny, fair weather, then twist the knob so that the woman comes out. Do this once only and don't adjust it any further. In fact, it works best when left alone after the initial setup.
The house has a thatched roof which is very rare. I have never seen one with this type of roof. There is a small area on right side that has some thatching missing but is not very noticiable.
