The golden tail
Moomin mug with motif from the episode The golden tail in Mumindalen's new 3D animated series of Moominvalley, based on Tove Jansson's timeless and universal Moomin stories. The mug belongs to the Mumin collection for autumn 2019 and is produced in limited edition. The motif depicts a sequence from the episode that is about the Moomin Dad putting up a play about his adventure in youth. Moomin plays his dad and it makes him so nervous that his tail hair falls out. The animated motif on the mug can be seen as a tribute to Tove Jansson's outstanding authorship.
The familiar stories that hide behind the motifs make the Moomin mugs something more than just an ordinary mug for hot beverages. Over the years, Tove Jansson's stories of the adventures in the Moominvalley have become classics that captivate both children and adults. When you give away a Moomin Mug as a gift, you also give away a story that will live on for generations. The mugs are suitable for all ages and can be combined with several parts from the same tableware collection. Pick your favourite motif, or combine several stories and let your new dinnerware represent something bigger than just a porcelain series.
The illustrations are designed by Tove Slotte and are based on Tove Jansson's original illustrations.
