Cameo brooch and perfume container from Avon

Just added a vintage cameo brooch with perfume container by Avon produced in 1970.
The cameo was one of the first vintage brooches produced by Avon in the seventies. Originally Avon began their jewellery range with glace brooches (brooches that had a small container to hold solid perfume) and then moved onto producing normal costume jewellery without perfume containers.

The perfume is unusable today and I wouldn't recommend smelling it! So I usually wash out the perfume as it does smell pretty disgusting.

I preserve the past. Researching family and local history. Finding about mine and other people's ancestors, is just one of my passions. I also love vintage costume jewellery made here in the UK. I write about my finds and like to research.
