Snufkin is is a gentle vagabond who plays his mouth organ and loves to fish. Moomintroll is his best friend and Little My is his stepsister. Snufkin wears a green hat and wanders the countryside wherever his fancy takes him. This carefree and philosophical character features in this ceramic bowl by Arabia with a wrap around green design. The design is from the story “Moomin and the Brigands” in comic album #1 by Tove Jansson.
The bowl is microwave and dishwasher safe. The bowl has a diameter of 15cm and it is approximately 5cm deep. This is TEEMA bowl originally designed by Kaj Franck for Iittala.
The Moomins appeared for the first time in 1945 in a series of books and later a comic strip by Finnish writer Tove Jansson. They are a family of Scandinavian trolls who are white and plump in appearance, with large snouts that make them resemble hippopotamuses but not quite. They are a happy, carefree and adventurous family who live in their house in Moomin Valley with their many friends. The Arabia artist Tove Slotte-Elevant has redesigned the Moomin tableware collection in keeping with the original drawings.
