George Washington’s hair and vest fiber are beautifully mounted in this magnificent frame. Accompanied by a portrait of our Nation’s first president and his signature, these extremely personal effects were originally in the possession of Thomas Farmer, circa 1845. Personal artifacts of George Washington are among the rarest and highly important American historical items. Until the late 19th and early 20th centuries, locks of hair and clippings of clothing were often cherished as remembrances of close friends, relatives and loves. To possess items belonging to such an illustrious figure as Washington is a true honor. 

A plaque reads: “George Washington (1732-1799) 1ST President of the United States/ George Washington was the commander in chief of the Continental army during the American Revolution and is regarded as one of the most important presidents of the United States. AUTHENTIC STRANDS OF GEORGE WASHINGTON’S HAIR, TOGETHER WITH A PIECE OF A PERSONAL VEST WORN BY WASHINGTON”
