Together Moomin mugs Moominpappa Thinking, Moominmamma and Berries, Moomintroll on Ice and Little My Sliding started a series of Character Moomin mugs. Each one has the Moomin character clearly shown from front and back.
This black and white Moomin mug was designed to match Moominpappa’s hat. Moominpappa seems to be deep in his thoughts on both pictures, holding his fishing rod in front and sitting on a rock on the back side of the mug.
This mug must have been one of the most popular Father’s day gifts in Finland during its production era. Nowadays these mugs are a bit harder to come by, especially in a good condition. There are many with some wear and tear on second hand markets though.
