Avon Car Bottles have become a world collectible that many enjoy to collect. It has become a favorite for so many. In this blog, you will find images and important info about the many different possible decanters and bottles you can add to your collection.
Avon Straight Eight
This one right here is a classic vintage 1970s Avon bottle featuring the Straight Eight race car. In this picture, the vintage original box can be seen.
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 after shave Avon celebrates the 1951 version of the car.
As you can tell from the bottle this was a big car with a lot of metal and chrome. Perfect for 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 car was fast and the bottle looks fast too!
