Framed and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, this extremely rare lot is set to sell for over £1,000. The market for unusual celebrity items such as this show no signs of waning, as a large piece of John Lennon’s hair sold for nearly £25,000 at a recent auction. However, this lock of Elvis’ hair can be yours for just a fraction of the cost, getting fans ‘all shook up’ over the prospect of owning a piece of music history! Mike Saffire, Catawiki’s specialist movie memorabilia auctioneer, comments: “Elvis Presley was famous not only for his ground-breaking music, but also for his iconic style. His signature quiff is one of the most recognisable pop hairdos in history and we expect to see Elvis fans from across the world try to get their hands on this special lot.” The auction will run until the 4th March 2016: http://auction.catawiki.co.uk/kavels/4442159-elvis-presley-10-pieces-of-hair-locks-from-elvis-framed-with-letter-of-authenticity-from-alyce-h-peterson-2005
What is CatawikiFounded in 2008, Catawiki was originally designed as a website where collectors could manage their collections online. In 2011, Catawiki started hosting weekly online auctions in various categories including art, antiques, classic cars, watches, jewellery, fashion, comics and stamps. Most objects on Catawiki have a fascinating story and you won't be able to find them in an average store. Before being auctioned, each object is screened by our extensive team of experts. They help guarantee a varied and high quality selection of lots in our auctions. Nowadays, for millions of people around the world, Catawiki is the place to go for buying and selling special objects. Catawiki has offices in the Netherlands, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Sweden among others. In 2015 Catawiki received an investment of €75 million and won the award for being the fastest growing company in Europe.
Our BeliefsWe strongly believe that everyone should be able to buy and sell special objects every day in an exciting, easy and secure manner. That is why we are constantly working to make the Catawiki experience as special as the objects themselves.
Special ObjectsOn Catawiki everyone can find something to suit his or her interests. Every week tens of thousands of fascinating objects are available in our auctions. A few examples of objects that have been auctioned on Catawiki in the past include: a complete mammoth skeleton, the most expensive LEGO brick in the world, the pope's hat, a meteorite from Mars, Napoleon's hair, the oldest condom in the world and Muhammad Ali's boxing gloves.
