A Delightful German Weather House
This weather house is 100% hand crafted by Trenkle, from Simonswald in the Black Forest region of Germany. Measuring 18cm in height, this charming chalet style weather house portrays the scene of an alpine chalet in Germany. Included in this scene is a bench seat, and a large tree out the front of the chalet. This colourful scene also includes a thermometer in the centre of the chalet, and a large amount of hand painted details including red window shutters with love hearts, as well as love hearts on the chalet facade itself. Rounding out this delightful weather house is a man and a lady on either side of the thermometer who move depending on the weather. When it is sunny, the lady will appear out the front, whilst the man will appear when it is rainy.
Measurements: 18cm (height) x 21cm (width) x 12cm (depth)
Thermometer Measuring Range: -20°C to +50°C
How Do German Weather Houses Work?
A German weather house functions as a hygrometer, measuring the amount of humidity in the surrounding air. Normally, weather houses have two doors side by side. The right hand side features a boy or man, whilst on the left hand side is a girl or woman. When the weather is sunny and dry (low humidity) the female figure comes out of the house, whilst the male hides. When the weather is close to raining and the humidity in the air is higher, the male figure comes out of his door instead, determining the weather for the day. The figurines are placed on a balance bar, and the movement is guided by a piece of material, which is very sensitive to humidity. In order to function properly, the weather house must be placed somewhere exposed to air such as near a window, and away from air conditioning.
German weather houses are often styled and decorated like typical alpine chalets found in the southern regions of Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Clock Shop’s range of traditional German Black Forest weather houses come in a variety of styles and prices to suit every taste.
