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 is a completely charming French duvet cover and pillowcase. It shows a shepherdess and her sheep with some words from a well known French song for children, "il pleut, il pleut bergère, rentre tes blancs moutons". (it rains, it rains shepherdess, bring in your white sheep).
The illustrations are beautiful and are in red and blue on a crisp, white background. The reverse of the cover is a blue and white gingham. The pillowcase is a French bolster shape which will accomodate a small "English" pillow or you could use the fabric to make a more traditional one.
The duvet cover is 100% cotton and is finished in the French style with a tail at the bottom to tuck under the mattress. It's a single size and measures approximately 140cm x 190cm plus the tail.
This set is used but in lovely condition with good cotton and crisp illustrations.
