Since it is Thanksgiving week I decided to share some pictures of one of my favorite Avon bottles.
Most of the Avon bottles that I have belonged to my Grandmother. One of them has always been on display in my bathroom, but most of them have spent the last twenty years in a box in the garage. During the pandemic I brought them in and now have some of them on display in my bathroom.
The bottle is still filled with Wild Country after shave. The bottle is in really good condition as it was wrapped in paper towels in the box, and still had the original plastic bag protecting the plastic head.
Is it worth anything? I did look and the prices were all over the place from just a couple dollars to up to $25 with the original box. The memories that I have when I see the bottle are more valuable. I remember the large number of Avon bottles that my Grandmother had in their bathroom.
The bottle also makes me think of Plymouth Colony where some of my immigrant ancestors lived when they came to America back in the 1600’s. Some of my ancestors came in the 1620 ‘s and some were there for the first Thanksgiving. The Braman family came a bit later, in about 1650, to Taunton which was then part of Plymouth Colony.
My Grandmother liked to research family history, so this bottle definitely has some memories associated with it.
