Snorkmaiden’s own mug was the anticipated addition to the series of character mugs. The yellow mug Snorkmaiden was in production from 2001 to 2012. Designer Tove Slotte picked the images that best described Snorkmaiden’s character. The original images can be found in Tove and Lars Jansson’s comics #15 Snorkmaiden Goes Rococo and #20 Moomin under Sail. In the mug Snorkmaiden is pictured admiring jewellery. On the other side of the mug Snorkmaiden is laying down in the grass, daydreaming of romance.
