A collection of Moomin mugs

 In Finmug's online store Moomin mugs are available with several different options. What is special about finmug is that there are options even for mugs with stickers (made in Finland, made in Thailand and different color options for the new summer season mugs). 

We check each Moomin mug separately, which allows us to offer different fitness class options. What is special about finmug is that we check mugs with stickers for even the smallest aesthetic errors, so that we can offer the best possible service to collectors of Moomin mugs. The base stamp can also be selected if the product has been made with different bases (year stamp, crown stamp or the newer Arabic "by arabia" stamp.)

From one Moomin mug, finmugs may have up to ten different options. In the product descriptions, it has been explained what kind of options there may be for the Moomin mug. Not all options are always available, but we strive to acquire more products all the time! If you are selling Moomin mugs, see our purchase price list from here.

All product images are sample images, except for Moomin mugs from the 90s and incorrect products. Our pictures show the watermark "finmug", which is not actually in the products.

How do you know where the Moomin mug is made?

The country of manufacture is clear from the sticker on the Moomin mug. Moomin mugs made in Finland are at least the Moomin mugs with stickers, whose sticker has the text: Made in Finland. Made in Thailand are the Made in Thailand moomin mugs. The country of manufacture of the Moomin mug cannot be deduced from other labels or the bottom stamp. However, some Moomin mugs are only made in Finland, so in these cases the sticker-free Moomin mugs are also made in Finland.

What does the crown stamp on the Moomin mug mean?

The crown stamp, "Arabia Finland", named by a Moomin mug collector, has been Arabia's factory mark in the years 1981-2014. Some collectors value this crown stamp and therefore collect only crown-stamped products in their collections. However, this crown stamp does not guarantee its Finnishness, as Arabia's Thai factories also printed this crown stamp on the bottom of the Moomin mug until 2014.

What's special about a vintage Moomin mug?

The bottom of the Moomin mug can have the year of the start of production, when it was made. The year stamp can be found on Moomin mugs, the production of which was started in 1996-2001. These year and crown stamp Moomin mugs are especially valuable due to their rarity.

In addition to the crown stamp, the year can also be found on the bottom of a few special Moomin mugs, for example Moomin Dream and Evening sailing - mugs. Since then, after 2014, when the crown stamp changed to a newer stamp (By Arabia), the year has been added to all seasonal and special mugs.

During 2014, the brand of the Arabia factory has changed. After this, the year of manufacture has been added to the bottom of each seasonal mug.

What does "ghost stamp" mean?

The ghost stamp, i.e. the series of two letters and four numbers found on the bottom of the latest Moomin mugs. The letters refer to the place of manufacture and the numbers to the date of manufacture. For example, the mug with the CR1013 stamp was manufactured in October 2013.

What's so special about the moomin mug sticker?

Different labels can have a big impact on the value of a Moomin mug. The appreciation is due to the fact that the origin or age of the Moomin mug can be deduced from the label. The Made in Finland sticker is considered the most valuable sticker because of its Finnishness. The least valuable is the Made in Thailand sticker, because it was not made in Finland. Other labels, such as "arabia.fi" and "Iittala Group", cannot be deduced from their origin.

Which mugs have different colored stickers?

Since 2017, three-color stickers have been made for the summer season mugs. In one box (6 pcs) of Moomin mugs, depending on the summer season mug, there are usually 3 pcs of green stickers, 2 pcs of red stickers and 1 pc of yellow stickers. Because of this, the color of the sticker may be important, especially if collectors start collecting stickers of different colors in their collections.
