Description

Thingumy and Bob plate from Arabia’s beloved Moomin collection portrays the two tiny friends amazed by the glow of the gigantic King’s Ruby. Tove Slotte’s illustration is based on Tove Jansson’s story The Magician's Hat from 1948, where the mysterious Hobgoblin arrives to the Moominvalley in a search of the greatest ruby in the world. Measuring 19 cm in diameter, the ceramic plate brings joy for both children and the grown-up.

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.
