England expects...Christies staff carefully wheel in the huge hat.
If you want to get ahead get a hat - £12,000 could secure you a unique piece of British sporting and military history with the sale of the Sylvia Fletcher designed hat that sat on the top of Nelson's column during the 2012 Olympics in London.
The unusual item is part of the 'Style and spirit' sale at Christies this week and includes an original Olympic torch and wooden bust of the great naval hero.
Unfortunately, being 6ft high and nearly 4ft wide, it won't be possible to wear the unique design, but it could be the ultimate 'statement piece' for a modern home.
