For more than 80 years, Avon has been selling health and beauty products, personal care, jewelry, perfumes, clothing, and many other items.  Sometimes they package their products in beautiful decanters and other glassware that have become a favorite of collectors.  In the mid 1960's, Avon began producing novelty containers for perfumes.  Collectors loved the new products, and Avon began creating more collectibles to draw in their customers.  In 1966, Avon introduced a cologne for men called Leather, which came in a boot-shaped bottle, which was the one of the earliest novelty decanters the company produced. In 1968, Avon found success selling men's Sterling Six aftershave in a bottle shaped like classic roadster car, the container sold so well, Avon came up with more whimsical ways to hold fragrances. Besides early cars, Avon made bottles for perfume, aftershave, cologne, bath oils, and lotions in the shapes of race cars, trucks, boats, and ships, which came in a range of glass colors.  Avon started selling dinnerware, glasses and other home items starting in 1975 with the ruby red 1876 Cape Cod Collection. That collection was so successful that Avon continued releasing different glassware and dinnerware collections for many years.
