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 shows a scene from the Herge book The Red Sea Sharks - Coke en Stoke in French. The front has a big picture of Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock laughing and jumping with Tintin shouting Hurrah. Above them is the French title of the book and a picture of the ship that stars in the story. The reverse isfilled with jolly symbols and words from the book. The overall colour is a turquoise blue with an orange and dark blue border.
These duvet covers all feature the original Herge drawings and characters. This one is dated 1998 and has the Herge/Moulinsart copyright mark.
All of the Tintin duvets are 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!
There is a matching square pillowcase withthis cover which has Tintin on the front and the title of the book on the reverse.
This is is a vintage set, not new but in good condition, the duvet cover is crisp and clean with strong colours. I spotted a very faint mark to the right of Tintin which I've tried to capture in the final photograph above.
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).
