The Fillyjonk plate from Arabia’s Moomin collection features an illustration of Mrs. Fillyjonk, a strict, tidy and sometimes even neurotic character who believes a clean home is key for keeping your life in order. One time, Fillyjonk is cured from her cleaning complex and lets her house get run down. Moominmamma knows just what to do: she lets Fillyjonk believe that a ladies’ committee is coming for a visit – in the illustration, Fillyjonk has started to scrub the home to prepare for their arrival.
The mugs, bowls and plates of Arabia’s Moomin Classics tableware collection illustrate the characters of Moominvalley. The 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.
