Avon was first founded in 1886 by D.H. McConnell Sr as a perfume company in California. The Avon line was added to the firm in 1920's and changed its name in 1939 to Avon Products Inc. Their lines were sold through local representatives as it is today. They also sold giftware, jewelry, lingerie, & cosmetics. Avon's long lifespan had an incredible impact, across the world of fashion & design!
~1888’s Found Treasures~
In keeping with 1888’s company mission to educate and preserve vintage & antique historical works, we occasionally decide that some things are better left as they are!
After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
