    Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson Authentic Lock of Hair

    For Sale: £15,000.00

    Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson (1758-1805) was a British naval officer famous for his victories against the French during the Napoleonic Wars.

    Nelson was known for his superb leadership skills and somewhat unconventional strategies.

    Nelson was involved in battle almost constantly between 1793 until his death in 1805. During this time he lost the sight in his right eye at the Battle of Calvi in Corsica and lost his right arm at Santa Cruz in Tenerife.

    Admiral Lord Nelson is remembered as one of the greatest British war heroes in history. He died during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

    This is a generous, fine, blonde lock of Lord Nelson's hair.

    The hair is housed in a beautifully carved, circular agate box decorated with a gold band. The box measures 4.5cm in diameter. A fragmentary enamel plaque attached to the lid of the box reads "N….05". The box is thought to date from between 1800 and 1810.

    This hair closely conforms to the other known examples of Nelson's hair and the box is similar in form to a locket which contained a lock of Nelson's hair that sold for £44,000 at auction in January, 2011. That locket also contained hair thought to have belonged to Lady Emma Hamilton who is known to have received Nelson's hair among other effects, after his death.

    This is a very rare opportunity to own a considerable lock of Lord Nelson's hair, contained neatly in a beautiful antique presentation box.

A series of wars against revolutionary and Napoleonic France, over a 20-year period, finally concluded in the defeat of Napoleon in 1815.

    Marilyn Monroe 'Happy Birthday Mr President' lock of hair

    £250,000.00

    • A large lock of Marilyn Monroe's hair, from the night she performed 'Happy Birthday Mr President' for John F. Kennedy at Madison Square Garden.
    • Accompanied by an instant photograph taken at the same event, bearing Monroe's lipstick kiss on the reverse.

    Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) is the most iconic female star in Hollywood history.

    Having started her career as a model, Monroe made a name for herself as a star of musicals and comedies including Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry a Millionaire, The Seven Year Itch and Some Like It Hot.

    But along with her role as an international sex symbol, Monroe also took her craft seriously and studied method acting under Lee Strasberg at the Actor's Studio.

    Away from the silver screen, Monroe lived a turbulent personal life, including failed marriages to baseball star Joe DiMaggio and playwright Arthur Miller, and battles with depression, anxiety and addiction.

    These battles finally took their toll in August 1962, when she tragically died as the result of a barbiturates overdose at the age of 36.

    Today, more than 50 years after her death, Monroe's stunning beauty, supreme talent and intense personal demons continue to fascinate fans around the world.  

    History of the lock of hair

    On the night of May 19, 1962, Marilyn Monroe gave one of the most famous performances of her career, during a celebration for President John F. Kennedy's 45th birthday at Madison Square Garden in New York.

    Monroe sang a sultry version of 'Happy Birthday Mr President' whilst wearing a virtually see-through dress, fuelling rumours of a secret affair with the President which have endured to this day.

    Just hours before her performance, Monroe visited her personal hairdresser Robert Champion at the Coiffures Americana Beauty Salon, housed within the luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue.

    After he had cut and styled her hair, Monroe asked Champion to attend the event with her, so that he could touch up her hair and make-up just before she went on-stage.

    Upon her arrival at Madison Square Garden, Monroe was presented with her outfit for the evening. Designed by Jean Louis, the highly revealing, flesh-coloured dress was covered in thousands of rhinestones, and was so tight Monroe had to be sewn into it, delaying her stage entrance.

    Robert Champion recalled those moments before her performance:

    "As we stood for a long time back stage at Madison Square Garden, she was very nervous about her appearance. I refreshed her lipcolor, powdered her nose, checked her blusher, and then she was announced again 'Miss Marilyn Monroe, better late than never.' In her very tight gown, she had difficulty ascending the make-shift stairs and I assisted her to the top where the spotlight hit her. The next is history."

    The lock

    This large lock of blonde hair was trimmed from Monroe's head by Champion just prior to that iconic performance, and remained in his personal collection for decades.

    The lock measures approximately 2.57" by 1.18" (7cm by 3cm).

    It is accompanied by an instant Polaroid photograph of Monroe, taken at a party following the event.

    The image captures Monroe smiling radiantly, perhaps in relief after getting through the performance, and bears her lipstick print in place of a signature on the reverse.

    Together, these two items represent a unique opportunity to own a part of cultural history, and an intimate piece of the most famous woman of the 20th century.

    Huge prices for Monroe memorabilia

    For collectors, Marilyn Monroe remains the most sought-after of any star in Hollywood history, and her personal memorabilia regularly sells for seven-figure sums.

    In December 2016, the dress worn by Monroe during her performance of 'Happy Birthday' sold at Julien's Auctions for $4.8 million, making it the second-most valuable dress ever sold.

    The record is held by the famous white dress she wore in The Seven Year Itch, which sold in 2011 for $5.6 million.

    This piece of hair originates from the infamous Pepsi commercial.

    Executive producer for the Pepsi commercial, Ralph Cohen, was among the first to aid Jackson.

    As seen on the now famous video, Cohen threw his Armani jacket over Jackson's head to help extinguish the flames. On removing the jacket Cohen found Michael's hair attached to the jacket.

    The provenance and authenticity of this Michael Jackson hair is impeccable, including the highly publicized video showing Ralph Cohen using his Armani jacket to extinguish Michael's hair.

    This approx. HALF INCH piece of Michael Jackson hair is presented on a display card perfect for framing*.

    Napoleon Bonaparte Authentic Strand of Hair

    £399.00

    Emperor of France (1799 - 1815), Napoleon is one of history's most famous figures. A military and political leader of the French, his actions considerably shaped European politics in the early 19th century.

    Napoleon ended lawlessness and disorder in post-Revolutionary France. Following a successful coup d'etat in 1799, Napoleon went on to conquer much of Western and North Eastern Europe.

    Defeat in Russia and at the Battle of Waterloo has diminished the stature of his achievements. However, Napoleon was key in establishing a legal framework used across much of Europe, based on Meritocracy, and his military strategy is still widely studied across the world.

    When the Duke of Wellington was asked who was the greatest general of the day, he answered: "In this age, in past ages, in any age, Napoleon."

    This approx. HALF INCH piece of Napoleon Bonaparte hair is presented on a display card perfect for framing*.

    Superb provenance; the hair originates from the famed collection of Margaretta Pierrepont, wife of President Ulysses S Grant’s Attorney General.

    George Washington was the dominant military and political leader of the new United States of America from 1775 to 1797, leading the American victory over Britain in the American Revolutionary War, and presiding over the writing of the Constitution in 1787.

    As the unanimous choice to serve as the first President (1789 - 1797) the president built a strong, well-financed national government that avoided war, suppressed rebellion and won acceptance among Americans of all types. Acclaimed ever since as the "Father of his country", Washington, along with Abraham Lincoln, has become a central icon of republican values, self sacrifice in the name of the nation, American nationalism and the ideal union of civic and military leadership.

    This approx. HALF INCH piece of George Washington hair is presented on a display card perfect for framing*.
