This latest marmalade-colored Moominmamma mug is designed by Arabia's illustrator-ceramicist Tove Slotte. The design is based on Tove and Lars Jansson’s comics Moomin Winter (1959) and Moominmamma's Maid (1956). In the illustration of the mug, Moominmamma is tending to her vegetable patch with Misabel, her maid. Moominmamma is no stranger to life’s small pleasures, such as taking a break for herself and enjoying a nice cup of coffee, as can be seen on the other side of the mug
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.
