1953 Ferrari Literature and Memorabilia
Here we have a vintage circa 1974 - 1975 Avon bottle of Wild Country After Shave in the shape of a 1953 Ferrari 375 (America?).
The bottle contains 2 fl. oz. of after shave but I don't if you would like to try it...
The set is unused and it is the actual bottle and box that are depicted in the photos.
The box measures some 13 x 5 x 3.75 cm or some 5.1 x 2 x 1.5 inches with the bottle measuring some 12.5 cm in length (some 5 inches).
The bottle itself is made of a dark amber-colored glass with a plastic closure which forms the tail of the car.
Good condition for its age as visible in the pictures.
A GREAT and unusual Ferrari collectible!
Only 1 available.

Original August 1953 issue of la Domenica del Corriere on the death of Tazio Nuvolari.
This is a complete vintage August 23, 1953 issue of "La Domenica del Corriere" with great artwork of "Nuvola" on the front cover.
This cover is also sold as a modern print but here you have the opportunity to acquire a 1953 vintage original.
It is in good condition but the (rope!) binding is extremely fragile and a number of pages have come loose as a consequence. This would make this copy extremely well suited to have the great cover framed.
It measures some 29 x 40 cm or 11.5 x 16 inches.
The inside contains a 1-page article on Nuvolari which is captioned (freely translated) "The man who knew no fear. The interesting life of Tazio Nuvolari".
