    Description

    Copious Lock of Willie Lincoln's Hair tied with a ribbon, behind glass in a daguerreotype case with brass mat and preserver and a copy photo of him in the facing frame. Willie's death in the White House in February 1862 was a blow from which his family hardly recovered; the bright, studious boy had been his father's favorite, and his brother Tad's only regular playmate. Together with an original miniature tinted bust photo said to be of Robert S. Todd, Mary Lincoln's father, contained in a gold locket-type frame, about .75" x 1.5", the verso of which is ornamented with woven strands of his hair, under glass.

    Provenance
    : Robert S. Todd, Kunhardt, lot 68.
