Keepsake Easter/Spring Retired Collectible Series

Anticipating the unveiling of a new design in a collector's Series adds to the fun and excitement of collecting. Each series of Keepsake Ornaments has its own theme and is offered for a minimum of three years, with a different design each year. Each Keepsake Easter/Spring Ornament is identified by a "egg*" series symbol and number. The first springtime series joined the collection in 1992 (the second year Keepsake Ornaments were offered for Easter) and the last series ended in 2003. In all 19 series were offered.

NOTE: Peter Rabbit™, 1st in the BEATRIX POTTER™, was
