King Charles III Childhood Collection

SKU PT1390
  • A unique collection of King Charles III memorabilia from his childhood - impossible to recreate
  • Superb provenance: sourced from the collection of Mr George Crisp, the personal barber to the Royal Family from 1929 to 1971

The collection features:

  • A lock of Prince Charles’ black hair: Kept securely by Mr Crisp as a reminder of his time with the Prince. This is the only piece of Charles’ hair ever offered for sale. A unique artefact. There is no more intimate a piece of of King Charles III memorabilia in existence.
  • A very early Prince Charles signature: Charles personally wrote this Christmas card to Mr Crisp, likely in the early-mid 1960s. We know of only one earlier Charles signature. The signature is clear and handsome. And so different from his adult signature.
  • Mr Crisp’s barbering scissors and comb: Almost certainly used by Mr Crisp to cut Charles’ hair. (Mr Crisp had stored the scissors and comb together with the lock of hair and Christmas card - indicating in the same collection as the lock of hair.) Both show signs of use. The scissors feature a French maker's mark; the brown plastic comb bears the maker's mark of Kent of London (model 13T). Kent holds the Royal Warrant for hairbrushes in the UK. 

The collection also includes: 

  • A March 1971 invitation to the Palace from the Queen, to thank Mr Crisp following his retirement that year.
  • Two newspaper cuttings detailing Mr Crisp's employment with the Royal Family
  • Photographs of Mr Crisp
