Rare Picasso Jewelry to Be Sold

Posted on March 7th, 2014 by Joe G

Did you know that in addition to painting and sculpting, Pablo Picasso also made jewelry? Aside from his editioned jewelry, he created personal pieces and gave them to members of his family, which will be auctioned off in Boston later this month.

Around 1950, the artist cast the jewelry with the help of his dentist – some silver, some gold. Included in the collection were portraits of his son and daughter, a satyr and a sun. The portrait of his son, Claude, along with the sun and satyr pendants, were given in the late 1960s to Claude’s then-fiancee, Carole Mallory, who has been holding onto them ever since.

Mallory, a model and actress, decided to sell these three pieces through Skinner Auctioneers March 18, and will be giving a lecture the evening before. They have an estimated value of $15,000 to $20,000.

How much do you think they’ll be sold for? Stay tuned for an update!

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

I'll be back

Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.
