Item Description
This Diamond Studded Gold Locket Contained 3 Strands of President George Washingtons Hair collected during his re-entombment in 1837. The Hair was well documented and the locket itself was attached to a 1911 E Howard Watch of PA in an origional John Wanamaker Box. The peice had great national interest and the documention from time of procurement to the present owner assured authenticity. We at Thompson & Riley LTD were proud to have been able to bring such a peice of history to the public at one of our fine auctions.
