8" X 10", double matted in handsome suede, unframed, highlighted with a copy photo of Lincoln seated, with strands of Lincoln's hair encased. The strands of hair are covered with magnified covers to enhance viewing.

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 certificate of authenticity which is attached to the reverse. Unframed.  [ld]
