I started collecting the Avon solids made in the mid 70's. I have the apple, gingerbread man and Eskimo, and Jack in the Box. I was wondering if anyone else likes collecting these too?

Although I don't collect Avon solids, I have had a solid perfume carousel (with a unicorn) that I had always thought was Avon. When I read your post, I went to look what the label on the bottom said, and it's a Corday. I know I've had it since the l969/1970. It still has some of the perfume in it (Tourjours Moi). Were the two companies connected in any way?

We collect most all of the solids. [Big Grin]

The carousel was put out by Corday and came with different scents. They did a whole series of unicorn solids. The Corday solids are all high quality. Max Factor bought out Corday so some times you will find a corday solid with a Max Factor label. [Puzzled]

If interested ( and Lisa doesn't mind)we will put some photos on of the "other solids".

Are you looking for any certain one?

Hi ann and Ken !
Nice displays too - but what a poor deer where's the other ? [Frown]
On the first picture I can see a whale do you have any idea wich company had made him I have never seen one like him before.
I'm collecting all kinds of solid perfumes too not only Estee Lauder. Many companys had made some special perfume cases and the older ones
are fine workmanship I think.
From Avon I have the piano, the book, the leaf,
the mandolin and the ring with pearls.
Do you have an idea if there are more than 3 silver necklaces from Max Factor ? I have the lucky bunny, the cat's meow and the wonder whale all mind in box with hang tag and searching for more .

Best wishes !

Michaela

The poor deer fell overboard. [Big Grin]
We do have him , he just didn't make the boat/photo. [Big Grin]

We will go through our solids and see about the silver Max Factor. Will get back to you. [Smile]

Hi Michaela,

Took a look and the only other Max Factor beside the cat, whale and bunny are the gold and silver Tapestry pendant and a turquoise stone silver pendant with a slide.
That we know of.

We will ask around and see if we can find out more. [Big Grin]

Not sure who created the whale. [Puzzled]
It is one that we can't find any imformation on. We have seen it without perfume and with . Course somone could have just put perfume in it.
It looks kind of big for a perfume solid. It opens by pushing down on his tail.

Wow! I've never heard of Avon making a Piano, book or mandolin! I only knew of the apple with worm, gingerbread man, jack in box, elephant and eskimo. So if there others, I'd be very interested in finding them! Thanks Ann and Ken!

Hi Lauderlover !
You can find them easylie when you put in Avon glace at ebay. The piano the memory book and the mandolin are made of metal not plastik like the Pin Pals. You can fin a very nice daisy a flower basket and a turtle. There are some necklaces a ring with a hematite like stone, a round green box with an acorn on the top,a petit point with a rose,a cameo, golden leaf pin, a big silver apple and a pear, a plastik oriental fan,owl pin with green eyes but I saw some with pale blue and pale violett eyes - I don't know if that are fakes.
A bow locket pin,I count 20 different Pin Pals maybe there are more.
