These "plates" portraying Mrs. Albee, the first "Avon Lady" were awards for sales one of the first years I sold Avon products. The series is called "Four Seasons" and her apparel is gorgeous. They hang in a little blank spot on a wall next to the china cabinet. In Avon history, the company was first known as California Perfume Company and this lady went door to door selling the perfumes. Of course, we know the company grew to be world wide and has more than "just" perfume !! These days, I just dabble with selling to a few faithful customers and buy for myself. My friends love getting the products as gifts. After almost 20 years, I keep trying to give up selling, but, the few people that buy from me, whine and cry as if there are no other representatives to buy from !! AND SO, today, I will submit another "small" order !!!
