Circa: 1970 Condition: Used Manufacturer: Avon Products Inc./Made in USA
This milk glass figural bottle advertising Champion Sparkplugs was made by Avon Products, Inc. in the 1970's and is marked: Avon / #13. Avon was strictly an American phenomenon, and a unique and pioneering one at that. The first Avon Lady was actually a man, young door-to-door salesman David McConnell from upstate New York. He launched Avon Calling in 1886, offering women cosmetics in the comfort and privacy of their own homes. By 1887, McConnell had twelve women employees selling a line of eighteen fragrances. And the numbers kept growing and growing. In 1939, California Perfume Company name changed to Avon Products, Inc. (10/6/39.) Today, despite the scores of expensive, prestigious American and foreign brand-name cosmetics, Avon ranks first in sales nationwide, with Avon Ladies ringing doorbells from coast to coast. In very good + condition without chips, cracks or fleabites it measures 5 inches tall and 1 5/8 inches wide. An addition to any Avon or Champion Advertising Collection.
