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 Tintin duvet cover in pale blue and sky blue cotton. It's shows Tintin and Snowy on top of a snow covered mountain. Around the picture are the words "The Adventures of Tintin" written in both French and English.
These duvet covers all feature the original Herge drawings and characters and there is no date on this one but there is an official Tintin/Moulinsart tag at the bottom of the cover.
There is one matching pillowcase with this cover which shows Tintin and Snowy on both sides. This set is French, so the pillowcase is square and measures approximately 62cm x 68cm. The duvet cover follows the French design, so it is open at the end with a long tail of fabric that tucks under the mattress to keep the duvet in place - genius!
The duvet cover is printed on one side, the reverse is a striped cotton that picks up the all the colours used on the front.
This is is a vintage set, not new but in good condition, the duvet cover and pillowcase are both crisp and clean with strong colours. I spotted a couple of tiny spots of red when I was ironing the cover - I've shown them in the photos below. These really are tiny, but they are there so please bear them in mind. 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 130cm x 190cm (plus the tail).
