$22300.00

There is only one first President of the United States of America, George Washington, and presented is a lock of the hair of the "Father of his country". The lock has been in the Washington family since George Washington's death, and it is accompanied by a wonderfully detailed Letter of Provenance from William Lanier Washington, the great grandson of President Washington's niece, Jane Washington. The notarized statement that accompanies the lock was duly sworn on February 11, 1921. This statement reads, "The lock of hair accompanying this statement is from the head of George Washington. It was cut soon after his inauguration to the Presidency of the United States, and was given to his niece, Jane Washington, who married her first cousin, Colonel William Augustine Washington....It was inherited by her son, Colonel George Corbin Washington, my great grandfather...." William Lanier Washington goes on in his sworn statement to explain the circumstances of this particular lock of hair. "As this [aforementioned large lock of hair in a brooch] lock of hair was of extensive proportions, my father removed the most of it from the brooch and divided it into several smaller lots, some of which I inherited, and of which the above described is one." The sworn statement is signed in black ink from a fountain pen, "William Lanier Washington". The offered lock of hair is framed, along with the sworn signed Letter of Authentication. The lock of hair is in a semi-circle, and the length of the hair would measure approximately 2.5" if straightened. The Letter of Authentication measures 8" x 10", and the lock and letter are framed at 11" x 13".
