Wreath made from hair in a glazed frame, said to be made from the hair of Lady Emma Hamilton and Horatia Nelson. Two entwined wire sprays covered with blonde hair, formed as flowers and leaves, forming a small wreath. Mounted on cream satin in a gilt wood frame. A handwritten ink inscription on the back of the frame reads: '...1807 Made by Emma Lady Hamilton from her own Hair and from the Head of Horatia 1807.' This item is probably professionally made.
