This latest gray Arabia's Fillyjonk Moomin mug is designed by Arabia's illustrator-ceramicist Tove Slotte, based on Tove Jansson's book The Moominvalley in November (1970) and the comic Fuddler's Courtship (1959). As seen in the illustrations for the set, Mrs. Fillyjonk has the uncanny ability to find any spots where dust or dirt might be hiding and, once uncovered, attacks the problem with a torrent of soapsuds.
The mugs, bowls and plates of Arabia’s Moomin Classics tableware collection illustrate the characters of the Moominvalley. First pieces of Arabia’s Moomin tableware came out already in the 1950s, and the large-scale production began in 1990. All the illustrations are done by Tove Slotte who draws inspiration from the original drawings by Tove Jansson. The form of the collection comes from Arabia’s timeless, ceramic Teema tableware designed by Kaj Franck now produced by Iittala.
