Vintage Tintin DOUBLE Duvet Cover - The Broken Ear
Great Snakes, it's double sized!
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. This size of Tintin duvet is always hard to find and this is the first time I've found this pattern in the larger size. It comes with one matching pillowcase. It shows the Herge drawings from the Tintin adventure The Broken Ear and is marked with the Herge copyright, dated 1995.
This Tintin duvet cover shows Tintin, Snowy and General Alcazar in a scene from the Herge book, The Broken Ear. These are the orginal Herge designs and they almost fill the front of this double duvet cover. Tintin and the General are playing chess in this scene from the book, and both the main image, and the smaller ones along the top show moments in the game.
The reverse is a white cotton printed with colourful images and characters from the story. Again the colours are strong and clear.
There is one matching, square pillowcase with this duvet. It features the General, Tintin and Snowy on both sides. If you wanted to make another one there is matching fabric in the shop.
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!
This is is a vintage set, the colours and print are good and the cotton is soft. There are no marks or tears to any of the pieces, just a tiny worn mark to the right of the main picture.
This set is in good condition but it is not new. I only sell bedding that I would be happy to use myself but please do remember that this is a vintage set. 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).
