This mug was launched on Tove Jansson’s birthday, and it received much attention. The original images of a sunset are originally from a poster made exclusively for Associated Newspapers in 1955. The image represents the island Tove Jansson and her brother Lars bought in Pellinki, close to Porvoo. The characters in the mug are originally from Tove Jansson’s novel Moominland Midwinter. The design was created by Tove Slotte. This special mug was only sold in selected Iittala stores, in the Finnish Moomin Shops and in moomin.com online store. What makes this mug so special is that it was only sold for one single day. It was sold out on the day of the release, and in spite of it being in high demand, a new batch was never manufactured.
