An opportunity to own a genuine piece of Hans Christian Andersen hair.
Hans Christian Andersen was a widely loved Danish author, acclaimed for having delighted children worldwide.
Stories such as "Thumbelina", "The Snow Queen", "The Ugly Duckling", "The Little Mermaid", "The Emperor's New Clothes", and "The Princess and the Pea" remain hugely popular and widely read. "The Emperor's New Clothes" and "The Ugly Duckling" have both passed into the English language as well-known expressions.
A 19th Century contemporary and friend of Charles Dickens, Andersen's works have been translated into over 150 languages, and have inspired motion pictures, plays, ballets, and animated films, most notably Disney's 1993 adaptation of 'The Little Mermaid'.
