I guarantee you'll never find a set - I'm missing my rear curtain too..... I have original curtains all round apart from the rear.
You almost never see another Devon Van with original curtains - I've only ever see one - Grahams (Type21f's) friend with the time warp walkthrough found bricked up in someone's front room - is the only other van I've ever seen with original curtains - but that's got original everything - even the plastic bowl!

I bet they all got chucked out by disgruntled wives probably about 30 years ago - the 'get rid of those smelly old things' and I'll make new ones came into play.... hahahahaha
(I know that's what my wife tried to do - and still does!! hahaha)

Looks like your van is Sea Blue by the curtain colourway.....?

Somehow i managed to keep hold of them apart from the rear one that was lost/sold/stolen by a garage working on the van for me about 10 years back.
Im now trying to replace everything in as much detail as i can.
I have found a woman who says she can reproduce pattern on fabric. I have sent her the above photo and will let you know what she says.
Other than that i think that rear one may have to be done in a simple un patterned fabric.
Yes it was sea blue but has been repainted. That is a archive photo .
Cumulus over Sea and papyrus/steel inside.
