A beautiful vintage lead crystal glass egg with this message inside: "Avon, Mother's Day 1977." The lidded bowl was created by the Fostoria Glass Company for Avon and originally held a bar of soap, but also makes a lovely candy dish or holder for jewelry or bedside change.

A perfect gift for Mom, especially if you were born in 1977 (or she was!), or if she loves Avon. Fill it with her favorite candies, a pretty scented soap, or a gorgeous necklace or earrings, and your gift is ready to go! The faceted glass of the egg will catch and reflect the light in her window and the treasured keepsake will remind her of you!

In good vintage condition, with just a couple of very small chips: one in the rim of the lower part and one on the top. WIth all the patterning in the glass, I didn't see these, but had to find them by feel! Let me know if you'd like close-ups of either of those spots.

4.5 inches long (11.43 cm)
3 inches wide (7.62 cm)
3 inches tall (7.62 cm)
