Mozart hair lock to auction with $23,000 estimate

A lock of Mozart's hair housed in a gold locket could make ?�12,000 ($22,935) at Sotheby's London.

The lot will cross the block as part of a sale of music and continental and Russian books and manuscripts on May 28.

It was presented by Mozart's widow to a friend and later passed into the hands of English composer Arthur Sommervell (1863-1957).

Hair of notable people from history has been growing in popularity of late, with a lock of Abraham Lincoln's hair selling for $25,000 at Heritage Auctions earlier this year.

We have an extensive collection of famous hair for sale.
