The True to its Origins serving bowl by Arabia is a Moomin-themed kitchenware item, part of a collection with the same name. The porcelain serving bowl is adorned with illustrations from Tove Jansson's amazing stories about Moomintroll and his friends. It depicts a scene that reflects Tove Jansson's journey into her own emotional life, as it is based on her last Moomin series book, Moominvalley in November, which she wrote just after losing her mother.
The scene itself is based on two stories: Moominvalley in November and Moominpappa at Sea. A common theme to both books is their melancholy tone, which is visible in their dark, almost bleak colour palette.
Its slightly larger size makes it the perfect bowl for snacks, fruit or other goodies! Matches well with other items from the same collection.
