Vintage Tintin Duvet Cover & Pillowcase - The Broken Ear
Suffering Snakes, it's bedtime!
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 scenes from Herge's book The Broken Ear. As with all my Tintin fabrics, these are original Herge designs from the books - not from the more recent film. The characters are shown in bands across the front of the duvet cover with large scenes from the adventure and smaller images of Snowy and the parrot.
This is a very hard to find duvet set, and is in beautiful condition. There is a Herge copyright mark, dated 1994 at the bottom of the cover.
This set is French so the cover 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! It comes with two pillow cases, these are made from an original bolster cover so are rectangular in shape and possibly slightly narrower than traditional size cases.
The duvet cover is printed with the bands on one side and a matching fabric on the reverse. Again, this shows characters from the story well scattered on a white background.
If you are feeling creative, there are some matching fabrics in the shop which are from the same story so you could add cushions - or even pyjamas to this bedroom set!
This is a vintage set, not new but in very good condition, the duvet is crisp, clean and well cared for. 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 140cm x 190cm (plus the tail).
