Michelle Obama First Lady Edition FigurineRipon, CA, December 9, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / PRWEB) Just in time for Christmas, Blackshear’s Ebony Visions™ Michelle Obama figurine steps out in a stylish red dress that is sure to be noticed. The perfect complement to the President Barack Obama figurine, both collectibles are in stock at CollectorHub.com. These finely detailed pieces are sure to please collectors of historic and presidential art and memorabilia, Black History, as well as those people who appreciate the exquisite artistry of Thomas Blackshear’s works.

“There are many important factors that make these two pieces significant,” says Larraine Covington, community director for CollectorHub.com. “The obvious being that for the first time in America’s history we have a black president in the White House. Another major aspect is the fact that both President and Mrs. Obama are represented in these figurines. But maybe the most important reason, is the artistic way that Thomas Blackshear has managed to capture the essence of this unique presidential couple.”

The ideal gift for that special someone or to add to a private collection, the Michelle Obama figurine is an heirloom quality masterpiece that can be handed down through the ages. A wise investment for the future as well as the present, both the First Lady and President Obama figurines are likely to increase in value. Savvy investors and collectors will not want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own these limited edition works of art.

“One of the driving forces that make Mr. Blackshear’s art so attractive to collectors is its constantly escalating value on the secondary market,” reports Covington. “The Storyteller, one of the most sought-after pieces of all time from the Ebony Visions™ collection, has been sold out since 1996. It originally sold for $410 in 1995, and is currently trading on the secondary market for up to $5000."
