Courting Carriage

I don't collect perfume bottles, but I have been known to buy something with cute packaging art, and this Avon Courting Carriage from 1973 is a perfect example of just that. The bottle is certainly pretty enough in design with its clear glass mold and golden cap, but just look at that painted wraparound artwork of the shy young couple in the early stages of carriage courtship-- awww!!! It's making me blush just thinking about the bumpy carriage ride of life that lies just around the bend for them.

Man the box is so often the best part. Course, the carriage would look damn great being ridden by a couple of clear Micromen, with the Karza Centaur pulling it down a tree-lined Miro Earth avenue.

You are so hilarious. They are cute! I totally think you should start collecting Avon products
