Vintage Tintin SINGLE Duvet - Tintin in America - Slight Second
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 Tintin duvet cover is covered with pictures from Herge's book - Tintin in America.
This set is an earlier print and places Tintin in the Wild West, complete with horse, campfires, teepees and, of course, Snowy. There is an original Herge copyright mark on the duvet. Because of its age, it's hard to find in good condition so I'm pleased to have this one.
The duvet cover is printed on both sides with exactly the same set of pictures on the reverse. The 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! It comes with an original matching pillowcase wich is square and has Tintin on th ehorse on one side and a matching print on the reverse.
This is a vintage set, not new but in good condition. The duvet is crisp and clean and the cotton is strong. There is a very gentle overall fade I think and I found a couple of small wear marks on one side - see the second to last image. There is an old stain to the side of the tail fabric - see final image. This will be hidden in use as it's tucked under the bed. It may come out with a specialist stain remover.
There is another duvet set with the same design in very good condition available in the shop.
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 140cm x 190cm (plus the tail).Have a look in the shop for a matching fabric.
