Item Spotlight: Vintage Roman Soldier Glass Bottle

A Small History of Avon and Its Collectible Bottles

First known as the California Perfume Company in 1886 by New York couple David and Lucy McConnell, Avon began selling perfume and quickly gained popularity near the turn of the century. 

They began selling their first collectible bottle in 1968: a brown glass Sterling Six Classic car. The idea of fun-shaped bottles soon grabbed the attention of thousands and collectible perfume and cologne bottles became an Avon trademark throughout the 1960s.
