My grandfather had a few of these. They are Avon colognes and they made quite a few of them. Have you ever seen one of these? Maybe your father or grandfather owned one?
Avon cars were collectibles back in the day. Here are a few of the designs for the Avon cologne collectibles.
Avon Straight Eight
Here is a vintage 1970s Avon bottle featuring the Straight Eight race car. In the picture you can also see the original box. The green decanter is adorned on the top with a big red circle with the number 8 printed in bold black lettering. The name “straight eight” comes from an early style where the 8 cylinders in the engine block were placed in a straight line along the crankcase. This type of engine first become popular before World War I, but by World War II it had been completely replaced by more modern engine designs.
Avon 1951 Studebaker
The Studebaker is an infamous car manufacturer that went out of business in the 1960s. In this 2 ounce bottle of Wild Country aftershave Avon celebrates the 1951 version of the car. As you can probably tell, this was a big car with a lot of metal and chrome like most other great cars from the early 1950s.
Avon 1953 Ferrari
This is the cool 1953 Ferrari bottle from Avon. Smaller than other cars at only five inches long, this decanter originally held two ounces of Wild Country after shave. This was a very fast car!
