Vintage Asterix Duvet & Pillow Case Set - Single Size
Sweet Dreams by Toutatis!
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 Asterix duvet set shows Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix in a familiar scene as Obelix tries to bash some Romans and Asterix holds him back. It's taken from the Goscinny & Uderzo book Asterix at the Olympic Games and dates from the 1990's.It's marked with the EAR copyright.
This set is French so the pillow case is square with Asterix and Obelix pulling faces at the Romans on both sides. The duvet cover is open at the end with a long tail of fabric that tucks under the mattress to keep the duvet in place - genius!
The duvet cover has a picture on one side and a blue cotton on the reverse with scenes from the books - more Roman bashing plus Getafix refusing Obelix's please for Magic Potion. (Which of course he musn't have, having fallen into the cauldron when he was a baby!).
This is is a vintage set, not new but in good condition. The duvet is clean with strong colours and good quality cotton. There are some faint tumble dryer marks - most noticeable on the edge of the pillowcase. There are a couple of tiny wear marks in the sky at the top of the cover and a small patch, right on the edge of the cover. See the photographs for details.
I only sell bedding that I would be happy to use myself but please do remember that this is a vintage set. This bedding has been well looked after and is in good condition overall - however, if you are looking for a new duvet set this one is not for you.
100% cotton and a single bed size - approximately 130cm x 190cm (plus the tail).
