Features of this item:

How old is it? Well The California Perfume Company actually became Avon in 1939, although the CPC introduced the Avon line of products in 1928. This container bears no 'Gold Medal Seal of Approval' which was seen on almost all CPC packaging from late 1915 through about the early 1930s -- and this container can't be earlier, or much older, because the Montreal office and laboratory opened in 1914. So this product which has Montreal along with New York written on it, was produced sometime after the early 1930s. (Text quoted from the CPC dot net site.) We could not find an actual date for this vintage item. Note our photo below which shows an oval opening in the bottom w it can be refilled; perhaps that's a clue as to its age. We think it's in very good vintage condition with minimal scratch, tarnish, no noteworthy denting. Do note the metal cap and the sprinkler it covers has some wear. The detailed pics below will let you be the judge. Navy blue cap, stripe, text and logos; same front and back. No weight designation. This almost-8-inch-tall (capped) metal container filled with white perfumed talc -- Daphne -- will delight the collector! It weighs 17 ounces so it's pretty full. A very nice early Avon / Cal. Perfume Co. filled tin with fast free shipping. Whether it's filled with the original Daphne remains a mystery, because don't forget the refillability factor of the 'poptop' bottom. Whatever talc is inside is very white, very fine, and highly perfumed with a classic scent that could very well be Daphne :)

Did you know? - Many people don't realize that you can place your maximum bid before the auction ends, and eBay will automatically bid for you, in small increments already designated. It's called proxy bidding, and it's the greatest thing since, well, eBay! Why? Because this method allows you worry-free bidding without having to be locked onto your computer at the closing of the auction, especially if it ends past your bedtime like some of our auctions do. You won't miss out, and you won't overbid. So why not place a proxy bid on this great item now, then get on with your life -- you might just wake up as the winning bidder, woohoo!
