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 one with this print. It comes with two pillowcases and has a selection of Herge drawings from the Tintin adventure The Seven Crystal Balls. It's marked with the Herge copyright and dtaed 1998.
This double duvet is a sunny orange and yellow and features Tintin and Snowy in various scenes from the story. The cover is divided into bands and each one has different pictures of Tintin and Snowy, they are divided by repeated borders of cats in various poses. The reverse is exactly the same. All of the pictures are beautifully drawn and the printing is clear. The cotton is crisp and in excellent condition.
There are two matching pillowcases with this cover. They are square and double sided. The front shows Tintin and Snowy and the reverse has the title of the book.
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, overall the colours and print are good and the cotton is crisp. There are no worn areas or tears to any of the pieces. This is a hard to find print.
I only sell bedding that I would be happy to use myself but please do remember that this is a vintage set and over 10 years old. If you are looking for something brand new, this one is not for you.
100% cotton and a double bed size - approximately 185cm x 190cm (plus the tail).
There various matching fabrics in the shop, if you want to add cushions or other embellishments!
