I had a look through Avon glass listings on eBay. Lots of milk glass (different colours) and hobnail vintage style containers, as well as more modern novelty items.
This seller gives an interesting brief history of Avon and Avon glass.http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6244061882
It looks as though many glassmakers, including Fostoria, made the bottles/containers etc. for Avon. Some pieces are stamped AVON on the base, others have no markings. None it would seem, with the actual name of the glass company. I also came across a listing for a milk glass trinket container stamped "Made in France."
This was spotted a couple of times and described as "Avon Blue Fostoria 'George Washington' goblet made for Avon by Fostoria 1970s-80s."http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAP.dll?ViewItem&item=7382792300
Also spotted a couple of times - 2 tiered serving trays "believed to be Fenton," and pressed glass butter dishes marked Avon on the base. So not just toiletries/cosmetics.
They don't appear to go for very much money, but some pieces are really quite nice. But I don't think I'll be starting a new collection though
