The 2023 Moomin’s Day Moomin mug’s exclusive version Sea Breeze platinum celebrates both Moomin’s day as well as the 150th anniversary of Arabia. Sea Breeze platinum is available only through an online raffle. The raffle is held between the 7th of June and the 13th of June. Participants will be notified via email on the 13th of June.
The Sea Breeze platinum Moomin mug has many differences from the regular version of the mug. The platinum version has platinum plated details in the illustration: a horseshoe and an oar. All mugs have a platinum plated Arabia 150 stamp on the bottom of the mug. On top of this, each mug has a unique item number on the bottom. The gift box is also different from the regular version. The box contains a leaflet telling the mug’s story as well as the product label. Only 5000 pcs of the Sea Breeze platinum are being made.
The illustration on the Sea Breeze platinum Moomin mug is based on Tove Jansson’s novel Moominpappa at Sea, where the adventurous Moominpappa moves the whole Moomin family away from Moominvalley to the oceanic lighthouse island. The illustrations adapted for the mug also decorated the writing paper Tove Jansson used to reply to her fans. The illustrations are printed beautifully with ink-blue color on a white background. On top of various popular characters from the Moominvalley, the mug shows islet scenery elements such as violets, wild roses and seashells. The adaptation for the mug was created by the recently retired Tove Slotte, and Sea Breeze was her 100th Moomin mug design.
The scenery of the mug also ties to Tove Jansson’s own life and time spent in the Swedish and Finnish archipelago. Her family villa and its surrounding valley provided inspiration to both the Moominhouse and Moominvalley. The Sea Breeze platinum Moomin mug will be delivered with a beautiful gift box with the same atmospheric illustrations as the mug.
