  • A guaranteed genuine collection of George III's hair

King George III reigned for just under 60 years between 1760 to 1820.

His reign saw an expansion of the British Empire, as well as the loss of its North American colonies, and the defeat of Napoleon at the head of a resurgent France.

Towards the end of his rule he endured a period of mental illness, with his son taking control as regent. George was a keen patron of Science and Agriculture, often portrayed as a man of the people in contrast to his flamboyant heir George IV.

Superb provenance; the hair originates from the collection of Emma A Pinkerton (1879-1955) an owner of the Detroit - Mackinaw Railroad.  

The collection includes a handwritten will from Emma, bequeathing the hair to her son Charles.

Also included is a letter of provenance from a previous owner, explaining that his research uncovered the fact that Emma Pinkerton would often display the hair to friends at tea parties.
