    Description

    Victoria, Queen and Empress: A Sample of Hair. The hair is mounted on a document that depicts the original envelope the hair was kept in for 160 years, a portrait of the Queen, and an expert certification by Charles Hamilton. The certification reads, "I certify that I have examined a lock of Queen Victoria's hair, contained in a very old, tiny paper folder indication that it was obtained on May 28th, 1837, and find that it is a genuine, authentic lock of Victoria's hair. This rare lock of hair came from the private collection of the late Hubert Evelyn Bray, professor of mathematics at Rice." Victoria's reign saw some of the most impressive expansion of the British Empire in its history as well as the Industrial Revolution, a period of significant social and economic change and growth in the United Kingdom.
