Arabia Moomin mug, The Hobgoblin, purple
Offer updated on 7/4/2022
The Hobgoblin mug from Arabia’s beloved Moomin collection features the mysterious magician riding through the night sky on his black panther. Tove Slotte’s illustration is based on Tove Jansson’s story The Magician's Hat from 1948, where the Hobgoblin arrives in the Moominvalley in a search of the greatest ruby in the world. 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.
