Betsey Clark Ornament #9 Christmas 1981 Vintage Hallmark Keepsake Glass Ball
This vintage Hallmark Keepsake Ornament from 1981 is #9 of 13 ornaments in a Collector's Series featuring the artwork of Betsey Clark. One ornament was issued each year from 1973 to 1985. In 1986, a new Betsey Clark series began.
The ornament is a pearly white glass ball with a red patchwork quilt pattern and images on both sides. The ornament comes with its original box.
One side of the ornament says "Christmas 1981" and shows two children carrying gifts outside to load them on a sled. Behind them is a rustic wooden house with a Christmas tree visible through the window.
The other side of the ornament shows one of the same children pulling the sled full of gifts and holding a candle. Above is a saying: "The greatest joy of Christmas Day comes from the joy we give away."
The ornament has been displayed, but is in excellent condition. The box shows lots of wear, it has some dents and some sticker residue in places. The inserts inside the box are still intact, so it makes a great place to store the ornament safely in between seasons.
