When I was a young teen growing up in the 1960’s, my dear grandmother began giving me Avon decanter bottles of cologne and after shave as gifts for every occasion from birthdays to Christmas to school graduation. She would always point out to me that these were special collector bottles and that one day they would be very valuable. Within a few years it felt like I had just about every collector bottle that Avon produced and enough cologne and after shave to last me my entire lifetime! Unfortunately, Avon flooded the market with these bottles and nearly 40 years later they are not very valuable, however they are still fun to own.
One of my favorites of these bottles is this Rhino / Big Game decanter bottle (with it’s original box and still filled with Tai Winds after shave). Thank you, Grandma!
