Avon didn't just sell cosmetics -They also had a variety of collectible items, including a line of beer steins in the late 1970s and early 1980s. This one, the "Sporting" stein, is from 1983, and features a nice pattern with intricate details . One side features a dog and the caption "At Point... English Setter", and the other side has a fish with the caption "The Strike... Rainbow Trout". The stein numbered and marked as "Handcrafted in Brazil". Practically like new - no chips, no damage, just a couple of tiny smudges (see the last two pictures). And the original sticker is still on the bottom!
