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 double sized, Tintin duvet cover with two matching pillowcases. It's a fabulous set and the first time I've seen this design in a double size. The duvet has a large picture of Tintin and Snowy jumping, and the pillowcases show them running.
I think this double duvet cover features Tintin and Snowy in scenes from The Secret of the Unicorn - they are iconic Herge pictures with Tintin in plus-fours and his blue jumper. This set is French so the duvet cover itself 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!
The reverse is a lovely sunny yellow and is covered in images and the names of Tintin and Milou (Snowy).
There are two matching pillowcases with this cover, both are square and in very good condition. One is slightly more faded than the other and the cotton is slightly softer. The reverse has the same fabric as the reverse of the duvet.
This is is a vintage set in lovely condition. The cotton is crisp and the colours and print are good. I found a couple of tiny wear marks and some tumble drier creasing to part of the dark blue stripe on the duvet cover. Neither of these particularly detract from the set. (See the pictures below)
I only sell bedding that I would be happy to use myself but if you are looking for a new duvet set this one is not for you.
100% cotton and a double bed size - approximately 185cm x 190cm (plus the tail).
