Hobgoblin rides on his black panther across the sky, searching for jewels. There is a special ruby he has not yet found – the King’s Ruby. His home is on the other side of the world, in a house that has no doors or windows. The Hobgoblin’s passion is collecting jewels, big and small. But there is one ruby he has not yet found, the biggest and most beautiful of them all – the King’s Ruby.
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.
