The Moomin mug Crown Snow belongs to the Moomin collection of winter 2019 and is produced in limited edition for the Finnish brand Arabia. On the mug, Tove Jansson's sixth book Midwinter Ancestor is presented. The book was published in 1957 and is about the Moomintroll who just woke up from his winter hibernation. At first, Moomin is alone in the silent and marvellous winter wonder world, but soon he gets to meet his friends Salome and Lilla My. In the illustration, they look up at a snow-covered tree. The name Crown Snow represents Tove Jansson's ability to depicts winter in the Nordic countries.
