Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
This Tintin duvet cover shows Tintin and Snowy in a variety of tricky situations involving a suit of armour! It comes from the story The Seven Crystal Balls and shows the original Herge designs. The duvet and pillowcase are both marked with the Herge copyright and are dated 1998.
The design shows bands of action involving Snowy and Tintin and a Siamese cat. These are all overlaid on a bright yellow and orange cotton background.
The duvet cover itself follows the french design of being open at the end with a long tail of fabric that tucks under the mattress to keep the duvet in place - genius! The pillowcase is square and shows Tintin and Snowy on one side and the title "Tintin, Les 7 Boules de Cristal" on the reverse, the colours are slightly paler than the duvet itself.
The duvet cover is printed with the same design on both sides. The duvet cover and the pillowcase are both in very good condition with good colours and no marks, holes or tears.
I only sell vintage bedding that I would be happy to use myself however, if you are looking for a new duvet set this one is not for you.
There are more pieces of this fabric in the shop so if you want a matching cushion add some to your order!
100% cotton and a single bed size - approximately 130cm x 190cm (plus the tail).
