What are Color-way Ornaments?
Color-way ornaments, also known as repaints, are Hallmark Keepsake ornaments that have all or part of the ornament painted a different color than the original ornament in the Keepsake Collection. They are produced by Hallmark in limited quantities compared to the line ornaments and used as prizes or incentives for various events and situations. The secondary market value of these items depends on how many were produced, how difficult they are to get and the popularity of the original ornament or its series. Most of these items are boxed in the same box as the original line ornament but have a gold sticker on the front upper corner designating the event or situation for which they were produced. However, the earliest color-ways/repaints were boxed in original boxes with NO color-way sticker or designation to note the difference in the ornament. Hallmark no longer use the gold sticker on the boxes are marked Special Edition, Limited Quantity, or there can be a description of the Event or Artist signing in the description on the box.
