Most Valuable Easter Decor Collectibles
Hold up. The Easter Bunny delivers $3,000 eggs? We've just been getting chocolate. Maybe we offended him or something.
Bunny predicaments aside, vintage Easter decor can be quite valuable depending on its age and condition. These are the most expensive Easter decorations ever sold.
40. Vintage Wool Chenille Chicks (Tie)
Bottom line: Despite being made of nothing more than paper and wool, these miniature chick decorations from Japan sold for $150.
The seller didn't mention their age, but decorations like these were most popular during the 1960s.
40. Ornate Vintage Egg Ornaments (Tie)
Bottom line: We can't be sure, but these one-of-a-kind eggs appear to open at the center. The seller didn't specify if they are, in fact, boxes, but they bear a strong resemblance to similar hand-painted enamel boxes that people often collect as a set.
If they are, they fit into two different collectible categories, raising the likelihood that the right buyer will snatch them up.
40. Inflatable Vintage Easter Decorations (Tie)
Bottom line: Sometimes, nostalgia gives a collectible its value rather than materials or history. These vintage inflatable Easter decorations were made between 1960 and 1990.
Likely to bring back memories of Easter Sundays hunting for eggs as a kid, inflatables like these can go for a fair amount when sold as a lot.
40. Rare Porcelain Easter Decorations (Tie)
Bottom line: The Herend company from Hungary was well-known for their fine porcelain collectibles in the 1980s. This set of three figurines included one red-eyed bunny, one patterned bunny, and one bunny couple figurine, all with the Herend logo on the bottom.
They're very small, none topping four inches in height, but they still sold for $150.
40. Vintage Tilly 'Niles Never Late' Easter Decoration (Tie)
Bottom line: This vintage "Niles Never Late" rabbit is one of the cuter Easter collectibles we came across. The stuffed Easter bunny was a limited edition collectible designed by the Tilly company.
With some collectibles, the potential for fakes is a real concern, but not here. Niles Never Late is so detailed that making a convincing copy would be next to impossible. His hat is filled with flowers, and his outfit features three different fabrics and a number of accessories.
40. Vintage Real Egg Diorama Decorations (Tie)
Bottom line: Made from real eggs, these tiny Easter collectibles were definitely made by hand. Each one was adorned with pieces of colorful trim and beads, with miniature Easter bunnies and ducks hiding inside.
The outside of the shells are also painted with festive Easter patterns. Their handmade nature makes them extra special, but also extra scary to ship. If their delicate shells break, it's not like you can run to Target for a replacement.
39. Lenox Peeps Ornament Tree
Bottom line: While this Lenox Peeps Ornament Tree isn't as old as most of the other antiques on this list, this vintage Easter collectible is still a nice find for a Lenox collector.
The brand was very popular in the '90s, and this particular collectible was worth more than usual since it was still in its new, unopened box.
37. Vintage Herend Porcelain Easter Bunny (Tie)
Bottom line: Just by looking at this little bunny Easter decoration, you can guess it's not something you'd want to elbow off the table by mistake. It was picked up from a private estate sale in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The small figurine is made of hand-painted porcelain, featuring an intricate fishnet pattern and accented with real gold.
It was made by the Herend company and was offered on eBay in mint condition. We'd expect similar pieces to be worth around the same amount, or more if they're larger, but they're so pretty that we're not sure how one could bear to give them up.
37. Vintage Easter Chick in Egg Blow Mold (Tie)
Bottom line: Nothing says "you light up my life" like a giant, glowing chick with a bow? To a vintage collector, that might be the case.
The festive, 21-inch chick was purchased in 2009 and has made it until now without any fading or paint loss.
36. Vintage Handmade Easter Wreath
Bottom line: During the 1960s, bright, colorful Easter decorations were popular, and many crafters decided it was more fun to make their own keepsakes than to buy decorations at the store. This handmade Easter wreath features just about every Easter-themed item imaginable, including plastic eggs, dozens of bunnies, baby ducks and silver tinsel.
This would be considered more of an antique than a collectible, since it's one of a kind, but it still sold for nearly $200.
35. Vintage Bethany Lowe Easter Bunny Boy
Bottom line: Bethany Lowe made a name for herself with eclectic, artisanal holiday decor. This Easter Bunny boy riding a chick isn't very old. It was only made in 2015, so it's not an antique.
Its value comes from the time and care it took to produce, since it was hand-painted by the artist. It's also highly detailed, with a woven basket, glitter, flocking, and working metal wheels.
34. Rare Vintage Lefton Bunny Girl
Bottom line: This shy bunny girl in a long white dress was made out of porcelain in 1950.
The four-inch decoration comes from Japan and is in perfect condition aside from some minor flaws under the glaze.
She's a very unusual find, so if you have one laying around, hang onto it.
33. Vintage Bethany Lowe Easter Figurine
Bottom line: Another special Bethany Lowe find. We hope the collector who bought the bunny boy also managed to school up this bunny girl.
Standing 10 inches tall, this sweet figurine still had the original tag at the time of sale, and not a single crack or chip to be found.
32. 1994 Lighted Union Easter Bunny Blow Mold Decoration
Bottom line: If you still have one of these vintage Union blow mold Easter decorations, you're in luck.
They're not worth thousands, but most of them sell for $150-250 on eBay, especially large ones like this.
30. Vintage Easter Deviled Egg Party Platter (Tie)
Bottom line: Every Easter gathering needs a platter of deviled eggs. What better to serve it on than this antique, porcelain Easter chick plate?
It was kept on display for some time and shows some minor discoloration, but the eight-inch platter still sold for about $200.
30. Vintage Gurley Animal Panorama Easter Egg Candles (Tie)
Bottom line: Even candles can be worth a pretty penny if they're finely crafted. This set of Easter candles was carved with a tiny animal inside each one, and the seller included the original box.
The value of candles plummets once the wicks are burned, so if you have a similar set, resist the urge to test them out before listing them on eBay.
28. Antique Victorian Milk Glass Chick Pepper Shaker (Tie)
Bottom line: Produced during the Victorian Era, this antique baby chick decoration is made with a combination of pewter and glass. It's only about two and a half inches tall, and was once used as a working salt shaker. The seller wasn't sure of the name of the company who made it, but the inside of the head was stamped "KLT."
Its age and antique design, however, were more than enough to turn this old kitchen accessory into an expensive Easter collectible.
28. Solid Heavy Brass Bunny Bookends (Tie)
Bottom line: Some valuable Easter decorations are more subdued, like these sweet, rabbit-shaped bookends.
They were made in the 1960s when bronze bookends and paperweights were the height of home and office decor.
27. Handmade Easter Ornaments
Bottom line: In the 1940s and '50s, some people took to making their own Easter decorations out of real eggs. These were made by hand and cut carefully into miniature dioramas decorated with tiny Easter treasures.
The collection included 43 ornaments, though, so they're probably not worth selling if you have just a few.
25. Saalfield Peter Rabbit Die-Cuts (Tie)
Bottom line: These vintage die-cut Easter decorations don't look much like Beatrix Potter's original Peter Rabbit artwork, but they were intended to represent the characters from her series of children's books. The die-cuts include figures of Peter, Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-Tail, Mrs. Rabbit and the wicked Mr. McGreggor.
They were made in 1936 by the Saalfield Publishing Co., each measuring about 14 inches tall. They're a little worn, but that just goes to show that a seemingly ordinary decoration can be valuable to the right collector.
25. Vintage Relpo Easter Bunny Pixie Egg Cart Planter (Tie)
Bottom line: Vintage planters like this one are increasing in value thanks to how many people picked up growing houseplants as a hobby during the pandemic.
This small planter was in excellent vintage condition, and the seller offered a similar one in pink so that they could be purchased as a matching set.
24. Vintage Gold Easter Egg Charm
Bottom line: This would be a special gift for someone who really, really loves Easter. The nine-carat gold Easter egg charm opens up to reveal a tiny chick sitting inside.
It's marked "London 1966" and measures about 2.6 centimeters. We're surprised it's not worth more.
23. Rare Die-Cut Easter Bunny Decoration
Bottom line: For some reason, there are many more German die-cut Halloween decorations than Easter ones. What gives? Luckily for collectors, there are few examples that held their value well over the years.
This giant, paper mache Easter Bunny was found at an estate sale. He's two feet tall and was designed to be hung on a wall.
On the back, it shows that he was purchased in New York in 1960.
22. Vintage Napco Ceramic Easter Bunny
Bottom line: Made in Japan by the Napco company in 1960, this sweet piece of Easter decor boasted the original foil label and a signature by the artist who painted it, Hermur Uniesuo.
The colors are still vibrant, and the bunny's paintbrush is intact, even though it's over 60 years old.
21. Vintage Plush Bijou Easter Bunny Figure
Bottom line: Originally scooped up in an estate sale, this old, plush bunny has a rubber face and hands and a furry bunny costume. It might look small, but it's actually 22.5 inches tall.
Those eyes would put us on edge, but someone evidently thought it was adorable.
20. Antique Paper Mache Easter Egg Candy Container
Bottom line: Paper mache Easter eggs were commonplace in the 1940s and '50s, but this one is an authentic antique, not a cheap reproduction.
The three-inch-long egg has a few flaws along the edge, but a collector noticed its German label and realized what a special find it was.
19. Vintage Boardwalk Originals Large Hand-Painted Wooden Easter Bunny Decoration
Bottom line: Antiques that are signed by the artist are especially valuable. Part of the draw of antiques is, after all, the story behind them. The wooden bunny rabbit was painted by J. Buller in 1993, and the basket was dated 1991.
The rabbit is nearly two feet tall, standing on a wooden base, but the seller specified that it was fragile and should be stored with care to preserve its finish.
18. Vintage Cloisonne Enamel
Bottom line: These beautiful eggs were painted by hand, which is what makes them such valuable Easter decorations.
Anything handmade tends to be worth more than something mass-produced, because once the artist stops making them, they can never be replicated quite the same.
17. Antique Viscoloid Roly-Poly Easter Toy
Bottom line: You can tell this rare Easter Bunny roly-poly toy has been around for a while. It's an antique, so the yellowing and wear are part of the deal.
We're not sure we'd spend $250 on a four-inch Easter decoration, but some collectors are in it for the long game. Pieces like this will likely be worth even more in another decade or so.
15. Vintage 36-Inch Easter Rabbit Decoration (Tie)
Bottom line: The eBay listing in question described this as an "Easter rabbit," not an Easter Bunny, and we're inclined to agree.
This piece of Easter decor is much too intense to be described as a bunny. Look at that stare.
He's also three feet tall and fully decked out in clothes made of satin, silk and velvet.
15. Vintage Hand-Painted Easter Trinket Box (Tie)
Bottom line: This delightful, hand-painted box shaped like an Easter basket is barely two-and-a-half inches tall, but its age and fine condition make it a valuable Easter collectible.
The lid features a chick in a nest of decorated eggs, and the box's clasp is shaped like a chicken.
14. Vintage Japan Bunny Rabbit
Bottom line: We don't know much about this adorable piece of Easter decor, other than that it's more than 50 years old and was produced in Japan.
Someone must have considered it a worthwhile addition to their collection, however, since bids almost hit $300.
13. Vintage 1930s Easter Quilt
Bottom line: Less than $300 for a handmade quilt is a steal, and this one is from the 1930s. It's not immediately apparent that this is an Easter quilt, although the pastel colors are a hint.
Up close, the fabric in each fan shape is comprised of festive Easter patterns, with bunnies, eggs and chicks throughout.
11. Rare Vintage Ms. Bunny Easter Bunny Egg Blow Mold (Tie)
Bottom line: Made in 1996, this Ms. Bunny Easter decoration wouldn't have been out of place on a front porch in 2000, but finding one today is harder than you think.
With chipped paint and some dirt left inside, we'd be thrilled to take $300 for it.
11. Vintage Beistle Easter Decor (Tie)
Bottom line: The Beistle company made a wide array of paper and cardboard holiday decorations. One eBay seller had quite a collection saved up from the 1950s and '60s, including 230 different Beistle Easter decorations.
The listing included the following:
32 — 13-piece Easter egg cutouts
32 — Happy Easter 35-inch streamers
24 — 16-inch egg cutouts, 4 count
29 — 5-inch tissue paper bunnies, 24 count
27 — 12-inch tissue paper bunny garland
32 — 9-inch honeycomb decorated eggs (16 pink, 16 yellow)
30 — honeycomb Easter Bunny centerpieces
24 — 4-inch honeycomb playmates, 3 count
All pieces were unopened and brand-new at the time of sale.
9. Large 1900 Imperial Russian Porcelain Easter Egg (Tie)
Bottom line: We're not sure what the initials on this hand-painted Easter egg stand for, but the details are striking.
This large, nine-centimeter egg was made of fine porcelain. It's slightly worn, but that's to be expected for an item of its age.
9. Rare Imperial Russian Porcelain Easter Egg (Tie)
Bottom line: Much like the last egg, this rare Easter age was likely made in the late 1800s.
Featuring a glowing saint, the six-centimeter decoration was offered by the same seller for the same price.
Collectors often purchase multiple similar pieces like this to complete their collection.
8. Jesus Imperial Russian Porcelain Easter Egg
Bottom line: Another, even more valuable Russian porcelain Easter egg, this one measures about 7.2 centimeters in length.
The image features Jesus with a halo painted with real gold leaf.
7. Imperial Russian Porcelain Easter Egg
Bottom line: The most valuable imperial porcelain Easter egg we found was made around 1900.
The eight-centimeter egg features religious figures, like the others, but someone must have found it particularly special since it sold for more than all the rest.
6. Vintage Don Featherstone Easter Blow Mold
Bottom line: Blow mold decorations were in high demand in the 1990s, and their value skyrocketed when they stopped being produced.
Don Featherstone was one of the most popular designers, responsible for the creation of this festive Easter basket decoration.
For something made in 1997, it's in fantastic shape with little wear and tear, contributing to its impressive selling price.
5. Vintage Empire Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny Blow Mold Decorations
Bottom line: Likely made in the 1990s, Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny are about three feet tall and were designed to light up a front porch on Easter night.
They're sand-weighted so they won't fall over in the wind, and their paint held up well over the years.
Despite a few scratches and a repaired electrical cord, the blow molds sold for over $500.
4. 19 Vintage Paper Papier Mache Easter Eggs
Bottom line: Paper mache eggs were all the rage in the 1920s and '30s, and some people kept them to hide chocolate in for future generations. If you have a set, you're in luck.
This set of 19 Easter eggs were picked up at an estate sale and sold for over $600.
3. Rare Vinrage 18K Gold Easter Egg Pendant
Bottom line: Sometimes, the materials an Easter decoration is made of that make it valuable. This egg pendant was made of a glowing purple amethyst and 18k gold accents.
It looks larger than it is, but it's less than an inch tall and weighs about eight grams.
Imagine if it got lost in the mail.
2. Antique German Mechanical Easter Candy Container Bunny Rabbit
Bottom line: German paper mache candy containers were popular decorations in the 1930s. This one had "April 12, 1925" written in pencil along with the name of the child who owned it.
Despite being around a century old, it works as well as it did in the 1920s. When you turn the handle, the bunny nibbles a tiny carrot.
1. Antique Russian Silver Enameled Easter Egg
Bottom line: This exceptionally rare Faberge-style Easter egg was passed down from generation to generation. It's unclear when it was made, but it's without a doubt over a century old.
The egg is made of silver and colorful enamel, and the entire decoration is encrusted with gemstones. It's extremely detailed, with minuscule flowers and angels on all sides.
It's only four inches tall, but the seller believed it to be worth over $20,000. It ended up selling for "only" about $3,000.
