Large Vintage Tintin Fabric Panel - The Broken Ear
Thunderin' Typhoons - it's Big!
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 large, Tintin fabric panel shows Tintin and Snowy with General Alcazar in scenes from Herge's 1939 book The Broken Ear. The central panel shows a large image on a taupe coloured background. There are six, smaller portraits across the top and bottom of the fabric and the Tintin title. The whole panel is surrounded by a black border.
This is quite a large fabric piece. The main picture is 165cm x 118cm and the outer, white border adds a further 3cm all around. Each of the portaits measure approximately 15cm square. As a single piece it would make a great curtain, blind or quilt cover but you could also cut out the individual images and create a patchwork quilt of your own.
This Tintin panel matches some of the Broken Ear fabrics in the shop.
This is a salvaged vintage fabric but it is in excellent condition with bright colours and clear print. The cotton is in good, strong condition and I can't find any marks or damage on this piece.
