Porcelain HIStory FigurinePorcelain HIStory Figurine

Back in 1998, a small company in Romania was asked to make porcelain figurines representing Michael Jackson in his HIStory tour. After the first 1000 pieces were finished, another 1000 were made but were never finished.

For the first time these porcelains figurines were offered in 1999 by manufacturer Carlitta Collection, during 'MJ and Friends'. This character has an altitude of 33cm and contains a certificate of authenticity, it carries the outfit of the HIStory tour.

A porcelain figurine of Michael Jackson shown in a gold and silver ensemble. The base of the statuette reads, 'HISTORY/ MICHAEL JACKSON/ KING OF POP/ 651/ MYSTERY'. An edition of 1000 of these figures was produced. The first statuette was numbered "0000" and given to Michael Jackson.

Every piece is unique, no mass-production, but an individual and complex production process. Made from 99% finest gold. Michael's knee-pads are made from platinum. The face of each piece is hand-painted.

This is one of the rarest official Michael Jackson items that you can find.
The porcelain figurine has been coming from the Mystery company but made by an Italian.

This is a great addition for the Michael Jackson collectors.

Death of Princes Diana:
In 1997 Michael Jackson has to perform on August 31 at the Wellington-race- course in Ostend. But in the night before this concert the British Princes Diana meet with an accident in Paris. It is understood that she had been eaten dinner with the singer just before. While a crowd of fans flow towards in Ostend, came the news that Michael Jackson was so overcome sadness that his action was canceled.

On Wednesday September 3rd, 1997 the concert took place, with as closing number a big picture of Lady Di as honour to her.

The item is a V.I.P. ticket that has not been not been torn off in the Hall, and this is particularly because everyone had to issue that Sunday his ticket to the entrance. This ticket is also equipped with a stamp.

Sure worth while as collector to search after this because more examples as this ticket are in circulation.
