In 1981, the "Chesapeake Collection" was made exclusively for Avon as part of introducing the men's product line. It coordinated entertaining accessories which also included ~ Set of 2 Drinking glasses ~ Set of Four Coasters ~ Round Serving Tray.
In this listing is the beautiful vintage signed Avon 1981 "Chesapeake Collection Jigger Candle with Fresh Aroma Fragrance Candle". This is part of the wild game motif that Avon had designed for them in this wonderful "Chesapeake Collection". This vintage Avon 1981 Jigger Candle... was craftily designed. Like most people I know, you look at something first before you read the directions. :) As I looked at it and began to see the dog, I thought "I" was the one that discovered that there was a tremendous incidental creation ~ a dog ~ it even has eyes! LOL As a child, I looked up and made things out of the clouds. What imaginations we have. Boy, did I feel defeated and deflated when I READ THE INSTRUCTIONS :) and found that this was wonderfully designed to have the dog as part of the wild life motif. This gorgeous amber glass dog jigger candle measures approximately 4" tall and almost 3" wide for the amber glass part and the candle measures approximately 1¾". The dog has the sweetest face. I was also surprised that in Bud Hastin's `Avon Collector's Encyclopedia", he described as "amber glass dog head candle, candle in bottom". He has a picture of the candle inside the jigger glass with the dog's head being displayed on top. Somehow I thought one might want the candle out first, but, what do I know? :) This beautiful jigger candle comes in its own original box and both are in very good condition. This is new and unused. The candle is unused. There are no chips, cracks or flaws in the amber glass, however, there is one small chip out of the candle.
There are instructions for careful use of this product and it gives instructions on the inside flaps for use of burning the candle safely. For your convenience, I have them inscribed here:
(left flap) "Because of the unusual design of this holder, use caution when burning candle to avoid accidental tipping." (right flap) "To insure proper candle usage, please read the enclosed insert on Important Candle Burning Instructions and keep it for future reference." Although the insert is not included ~ it's been a long 29 years ~ I have the information that is on that insert, so please keep this as your reference. IMPORTANT CANDLE BURNING INSTRUCTIONS Read carefully and Save for Future Reference ~ not in the box. See the pictures 5, 6 and 7 for burning instructions for safety.
For your convenience, I have inscribed the information that is on the back of this original box:
