Rare Picasso Jewelry to Be Sold

Posted on March 7th, 2014 by Goldman Buyer

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 recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
