Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
There are two of these cotton panels available and both measure 175cm (l) x 125cm (w). They are from the Moulinsart collection and date from 1998.
The panel is from the story of Tintin and the 7 Crystal Balls and shows Tintin and Captain Haddock in another perilous situation. The title of the story is below them in French, and the whole piece is bordered by orange and yellow spinning crystals. The fabric is a bright blue with a slight check effect.
The fabric is reclaimed but is in very good condition. The cotton has no weak points or tears and the colours are strong and clear. One panel has some shaded marks near the top - I think they may be a printing fault. I don't think they make a huge difference to the piece but I always mention marks that I find and you can see them for yourself in the photos below.
There are two of these panels available, they are identical and would make fantastic curtains for a Tintin fan. One could be used as a throw or bedcover or the central picture would make a great centrepiece for a quilt.
