Product Description

Moomin Ancestor / Teema Mug

Vitreous porcelain with pattern

Tove Jannson 1945 / Teema Mug form: Kaj Franck 1952 / Ceramic Illustration: Tove Slotte for Arabia Finland 2016

[H 110mm x 83mm x 81mm / capacity: .30L]

The fascinating, mystical Ancestor is small and hairy. He moves only at night, and does not speak at all. He lives in the Moominhouse salon, behind the oven. He keeps on decorating the house by turning paintings upside down.

Moomin Classics series features each character of the Moominvalley emphasizing each one’s own typical traits. The artwork present the characters from the front and behind and tells the story of that specific character. Arabia’s Moomins are turned from stories to ceramic illustrations by designer Tove Slotte. She has been drawing Moomins onto Arabia items since the beginning of the 1990s. The designer draws inspiration from Tove Jansson’s original illustrations, which she adapts to ceramic shapes. The Moomins have always been close to Tove Slotte’s heart. She articulated the significance of the Moomins nicely when she said: I think everyone should enjoy a little dose of Moomin philosophy every day.

Features: Dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe, oven-safe and freezer-safe
