Vintage AVON Large Butterfly Pearl Rhinestone Pin Brooch
$22.00 This beautiful, big bold butterfly was made by AVON and is a fine example of Avon quality and craftsmanship. The big brooch depicts finely textured gold tone wings with rhinestones and drops of art glass for the head and the body is a giant faux pearl. Signed, “©AVON”. The brooch measures 2-1/4" across the wing span and 1-3/8" tall. It is in mint condition and I believe it was never worn.
Avon was founded in 1886 in New York as the California Perfume Company, by D.H. McConnell. His company initially published books and sold them door to door (in NY, not Calif). He also liked to make perfume and gave samples to his women customers. The perfume was in higher demand than the books and the company began to produce cosmetics and employed women to sell the products door to door. This was during a time when it was highly unusual for companies to enable women to earn money.
In 1939, the company’s name was changed to Avon Products, Inc. In 1955, the company introduced its highly recognized “Avon Calling” advertising slogan.
Avon costume jewelry was added to the Avon product line in the early 1970’s. Their jewelry became known for its high quality with the look of the ‘real’ thing. Over the subsequent years many famous jewelry designers fashioned pieces for Avon.
Early Avon jewelry continues to gain ground in the vintage jewelry market because of its fine design and craftsmanship.
