8" X 10" matted display with several stands of the actual hair of Mary Todd Lincoln with a copy photograph of her. Double matted on scarlet suede with Florentine gold trim.

These strands came from locks of hair collected by Mrs. Caroline Wright, the wife of Indiana Governor Joseph A. Wright. Mrs. Wright collected hair of political figures during the latter half of the 19th Century and these were given to her after Lincoln's inauguration in 1865 as a token of friendship between the Wrights and the Lincolns. These relics passed through the Wright family until sold with other items at Christie's auction house in 1992. In 2002, these relics were again sold by Christie's as a part of the Forbes Collection (Lot #121). A description of the lot is included with the display along with our certificate of authenticity. Sold matted and shrink wrapped ready to frame.
