A wedding cake topper made with a sample of Slash’s real hair has gone up for sale online. The eBay auction describes the piece of memorabilia, which ships with a letter certifying its authenticity, as “one of the most unusual Slash items maybe ever.”
The cake topper was reportedly made for the Guns N’ Roses guitarist’s 2001 wedding to Perla Ferrar, who passed the item on to Californian auction house Julien’s Auctions after the pair’s divorce in 2018.
The accompanying certificate of authenticity provided by Julien’s Auctions confirms that “when Perla Hudson consigned this property to Julien’s Auctions, she indeed told us that the hair on the cake topper belonged to Slash.”
The cake topper depicts a miniature Slash and Perla, and while Slash doesn’t sport his signature sunglasses and Les Paul, there is a matching miniature top hat to really frame the human hair that completes the figurine. Take a look below:
The item is on sale for a somewhat eye-watering $3,000, however as the auction page says, it is “a truly rare and unusual piece from Slash’s life. Just incredible.” Whether that’s too large a price to pay for some of the most iconic hair in rock history is up for you to decide. If not, you can view the listing over at ebay.com.
