Vintage Tintin Duvet Cover & Pillowcase - The Shooting Star
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 Shooting Star. As with all my Tintin fabrics, these are original Herge designs from the books - not from the more recent film. Tintin and Snowy are shown in three large panels from the story as they stand on the deck of a ship in rather stormy seas! These panels are overlaid on a map and a smaller panel showing Tintin and the title of the book in French.
This is a very hard to find duvet set, and is in beautiful condition. There is a Herge copyright mark, dated 1993 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 one sqaure pillowcase with Tintin and Captain Haddock on the front and the map on the reverse. The pillowcase has a slight overall fade of the pale blue but nothing too drastic and I don't think it detracts overall.
The reverse of the duvet cover has a matching fabric which shows more scenes from the story with the characters 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 good condition, the duvet is c 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).
