A Time Remembered

Circa: 1980
Condition: Used
Manufacturer: Avon Products Inc./Precious Moments/Made in Japan
This figurine, My First Call, was made in Japan by The Precious Moments Collection and created exclusively for Avon in 1980.
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.
The Merry Mouse dressed in pastel colors and carrying her Avon book while holding a basket full of products while knocking on a door is ready to make her first sale.
In very good + condition without chips, cracks or fleabites she measures 5 1/2 inches tall, 3 3/8 inches wide and 3 3/4 inches deep.
An addition to any Avon Figurine Collection.
