What are Avon Bottles?

The story of Avon bottles starts with a door-to-door bookseller who noticed that women who answered the doors were more interested in the scent on his body than the books he offered.

He decided to sell perfumes rather than books. In 1886, he incorporated “California Perfume Company” to make his perfumes. Following the vast success of the company’s “Avon” perfume, the company changed its name to “Avon Product Inc” in 1939. The company will later expand to include other cosmetic products such as aftershaves, bath oils, and lotions.

The glass bottles that the company’s fragrances and other products are sold in are what known as Avon bottles.

Avon bottles have always been iconic. However, Avon started making even bigger statement with their bottles by making figural bottles. These bottles were shaped like some other things.

The first figural bottles were shaped like a boot. In time, a wide variety of shapes were introduced. These include cars, motorcycles, boats, trains, guns, clocks, animals (dogs, horses, peacocks, etc), humans, more.

Are Avon Bottles worth anything?

While the value of Avon bottles has not risen as high as most people will want, these bottles are valuable today. A single vintage Avon bottle from many decades ago that is in good condition can be worth anything between $50 to over $200.

What makes Avon bottles valuable?

A host of Avon bottles are not valuable today. This is because Avon Product Inc has offered their products till this day, but only vintage Avon bottles are worthy collectibles.

What makes an Avon bottle valuable include when it was made, how rare it is, and the condition it is in.

Age

With collectibles, the older a product is, the more valuable it tends to be. It is the same thing with Avon bottles. So, earlier Avon bottles are generally more valuable than the later ones.

Rarity

Avon bottles that are hard to find are generally more valuable than those that are more readily available. This is one reason why the pre-1965 Avon bottles are very valuable. These bottles are so rare that anyone that is found commands a good fee.

Condition

The closer the Avon bottles are to their original condition, the more valuable it’ll be.

The factors that determine the condition of Avon bottles include:

  • Whether the bottle is opened or unopened.
  • The original content of the bottle. That is, is the bottle full partly-full, or empty?
  • The content stickers. Are they intact? How clear and legible are the markings on them?
  • Original package. Is the original box of the Avon bottle available?
  • How free is the bottle of sign of use like scratches and cracks?

So, Avon bottles that are unopened, still have their original content, and have all content stickers intact will be the very valuable. Having the bottles in their original packaging raises their value even more. Empty bottles can still be very valuable if they have their stickers intact and are free of scratches and cracks.

Final Thoughts

The Avon bottles of yesteryears are valuable collectibles today. Though their prices are relatively low compared to other collectibles, a vintage Avon bottle can fetch you the tidy sum of $50 – $200. Avon bottles from the pre-figural period can easily fetch you $200+. But you have to find them first, and they seem not to be anywhere.
