The Moominmamma bowl from Arabia’s Moomin collection is adorned with a charming illustration of Moominmamma working on her vegetable patch with her maid, Misabel. Misabel has been hired to take care of the Moominhouse after Mrs. Fillyjonk suggested Moominmamma might need help in keeping her messy home in order. The reverse side of the bowl, however, shows that Moominmamma can also take it easy and isn’t bothered by small things like mess and clutter.

The mugs, bowls and plates of Arabia’s Moomin Classics tableware collection illustrate the characters of Moominvalley. First pieces of Arabia’s Moomin tableware came out already in the 1950s, and their 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.
