Mug Constable also known as the Inspector was launched in 2009 and the production was discontinued in 2020. Production of the bowl with the same design was discontinued earlier, in 2015. The original images for the mug are found in Tove and Lars Janssons’ comic #16 Conscientious Moomin and #21 Fuddler’s Courtship. In the bright green mug the Inspector is seen taking care of his flowers. The Inspector is one of the Hemulens, so horticulture is a natural hobby for him.
