Three bottles and a Caddy, Avon.,oh and ...Turn up your volume!!

Avon Foxfire 5 Guest Soaps in Original Gift Box Open Link!
These sweet smelling 5 little bars of Foxfire fragrance are like new. Never used. They have the Foxfire and Avon marks embossed on them and they are protected with a cello/gauze cover/ The pretty tiger lily flip top box is in good condition one small crease along the side, but other than that it is not worn. There is some outline where the original seal was. This set measures 1.5x1.75x.75. The soaps are each 2.25 x 1.25.I would suggest purchasing as a collector and not as a gift for someone, unless of course they are a collector as well. This would be a very nice addition to your Avon or vanity collections.
I love the adorable and loving expressions on the faces of all 3 of bottles poised on the front of this Caddy! Daddy and Mommy glancing at each other…3 bottles in a caddy. Traditional pinks and blues are used so as to be presented to either gender. The back opening is about 2’ by 4.5”, but the characters are hollow so much more room is there to store or use for whatever purpose Mom and Dad needs! The unit dimensions are 6 x 4.5 x 6".Sought after, the Relpo Samson Import Co. label is in demand. There is only 1 teeny little chip of glaze in the top of Dads bottle top, the rest is in like new perfect condition.The markings state on the ceramic “Samson Import Co 1964”. The little paper sticker still attached says “Relpo Chicago Il. Made in Japan”.Too cute!

This sweet cardboard box of Coquet Face Powder smells lovely, light and powdery. The lid is gold embossed with the image of Scroll type design with a ladies fan just under the “Coquet” logo, all set on a pearlescent eggshell colored wrap over the cardboard. This too is embossed with flowers and other subtle graphics . As you can see when opened, the box is sealed with a slight bit of fray of the paper, but it is entirely sealed, nonetheless. Nothing leaks out, but the subtle fragrance. The fragrance has held well because of this.I really have no idea what color the powder is, except to say the label on the bottom reads, “Natural Flesh” $2.00. This was probably a high price in the 50’s, which is what I guess the age to be. I tried to research to find out more about the brand, but I found nothing at all. In fact most of the Coquet’s I found were with 2 “t’s”. Is this a rare find?The lid slides off and on easily. There is one tiny blemish on the outer box, and nothing at all blemished on the inside. It measures s 75 x 1.75.Add this to your vanity collection, you won’t be disappointed!
