|Michelle Obama Inaugural Ball dolls by Ashton Drake (on left) and Danbury Mint (on right)|
Your website and the mailed literature I received regarding item #302035001, First Lady of Fashion Michelle Obama Inaugural Ball Commemorative Doll does not indicate the medium used. Is this doll vinyl, porcelain, or other material? Thank you!The price is $129.99 or 5 installments of $26 + S and H of 14.99US, which is slightly less than Danbury Mint's price of 4 installments of $39.50 US. Danbury Mint's price includes shipping and their doll is vinyl.
Ashton-Drake is not as notorious about producing dolls that are far unlike the advertised doll, but they have been guilty of this in the past. I would really like to see their production version of First Lady of Fashion Michelle Obama Inaugural Ball Commemorative Doll before ordering.
I will post an update regarding the doll's medium if AD provides a reply.

Reader, Dawn S. pointed out what I missed in Ashton-Drake's description:
"Expertly handcrafted in artist's resin and hand-painted by elite artisans to create a stunning likeness of the First Lady, from her dazzling smile to her chic new hairstyle."
My eyes were looking for porcelain but hoping for vinyl in the AD description. I never considered this doll would be made of resin, which could be porcelain-like or vinyl-like, depending on the resins used.
