Sanrio and Irish Dresden announced on June 5 that in November, Irish Dresden would produce a Limited Edition Porcelain Figurine of Hello Kitty. It is the first time that a Hello Kitty doll will be made from porcelain. Two thousand figurines are to be produced at 49,900 Yen each.

A little bit about Irish Dresden:

"In 1962, the factory now known as 'Irish Dresden' was established at Dromcolliher, County Limerick. The process had begun of establishing in Ireland the traditions and skills of fine lace porcelain manufacture, previously to be found only in Theuringia. In 1968 tragedy struck with the untimely death of co-founder Oskar Saar. The family tradition survived however, and Irish Dresden, now run by Johanna Saar and her daughter Sabina, continues to produce magnificent porcelain figures and other fine porcelain giftware under the original stamp of 'Muller - Volkstedt'."


Thanks to kawarano or I probably wouldn't have noticed this. :)
