Vintage Asterix Duvet Cover - America - 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 and Obelix in a variety of scenes from the Goscinny & Uderzo book The Great Crossing. One of the other duvet covers in the shop depicts our two heros crossing the ocean. This one shows them making friends with the locals in the new land that they have discovered.
This is a single size duvet cover. It is open at the end with a long tail of fabric that tucks under the mattress to keep the duvet in place - genius! There is no matching pillowcase to this one but there are Asterix and Obelix fabrics in the shop so you could make one if you were feeling creative!
This duvet cover is double sided with the same picture on both sides. It dates from 1994 and is marked with the Goscinny/Uderzo copryright.
This is is a vintage set, not new but in good condition. The duvet is crisp and clean with strong colours and good quality cotton. I found a couple of tiny worn areas - see the pictures above. Also the print is slightly more worn on the tail that tucks in, it's just from where it's been uinder the mattress though so nothing drastic.
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 - 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)
