90's Moomin mug 1991 – 1999 Dark Blue Moominpappa Arabia Finland
Moomin mug by Arabia Finland, in production years 1991-1999. This is a very sought for mug with an entchanting, intense blue color.
There is a yellow spot on the inside of the mug close to the upper border. The enamel is thinner at that spot and some tea coloring has apparently soaked through causing some yellowness there. See pictures 1, 4 and 6.
There is also some very faint enamel cracks at the lower attachment of the ear, probably from temperature changes. These may have arisen already at production, but are now slightly yellowish.
This mug is othervise in a fairly good used condition with many, but small signs of use and no spoon marks. It is sold at a reduced price because of the issues described above.
