This pink Moomin mug featuring Snorkmaiden and Moomintroll hugging has become a classic since it was released in 1996. It’s elegantly illustrated by Arabia artist Tove Slotte. The illustrations on the Moomin mug can be found in the second and third Moomin comic books.
Capacity: 300ml. Height: 8cm. This is the TEEMA mug 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.
The ceramic mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe.
