The manufacturer of the figurines, Skultuna, has long traditions in making jewelry and metal products, but instead of gold, the company is best known for its home accessories in brass. Originally, it actually was a brass foundry established by the king of Sweden, Karl IX, in 1607.

Its products exude timeless elegance and uncompromising quality, sure to last from one generation to the next.

The same goes, of course, for the gilded Moomin figurines. They add a dose of playful elegance to any home and are guaranteed to brighten up the day of every Moomin fan, however young or old!
