ORIGINAL MICKEY MOUSE WEATHER HOUSE/HYGROMETER dating to the 1950s.
MICKEY MOUSE (left) came out of doorway 8 to 24 hours in advance of clear weather.
DONALD DUCK (right) came out of doorway 8 to 24 hours in advance of stormy weather.
BOTH FIGURES standing evenly in doorway indicated changeable weather.
Instructions printed on cardboard on back.
Cardboard on back has a small stain. (see photo)
See photo with blue rooster showing upper area of back. There is supposed to be a small thin string/line coming down from the rooster in order for the weather to be predicted. You can barely see what remains of that line in photo. Hence, no weather predicting happening. Mickey and Donald retired from the business until somebody reactivates them.
There are a few small areas where original paint has chipped. (see photo)
No breaks to the plastic or figures to my knowledge. No box.
This weather house has a blue roof which seems more rare to find. Most often found are roofs in yellow or red.
This item has been in our family since the 1950s.
