Vintage Avon Cotillion


Here's some more of my vintage Avon collection. The first picture is a page from a 1965 Avon catalog I have. My picture doesn't show the true pretty pink color. One tip on dating the age of the containers is if the address for Avon on the bottle label has a zip code. Zip codes were introduced about 1963. Cotillion fragrance was introduced in the 1930's and had a completely different bottle design. The design I have was started in 1961 until 1974. I think it is a lovely design.
