Arabia’s Ancestor mug in black features a peculiar ancestor of the Moomins that lives in their house behind the tile stove. The hairy, nocturnal creature has the habit of redecorating their parlour by turning paintings upside down. The ceramic Moomin mugs are great for serving tea, coffee as well as hot chocolate and will cheer up any table setting.
The mugs, bowls and plates of Arabia’s Moomin Classics tableware collection illustrate the characters of the Moominvalley from the front and behind. 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.
