A Picasso owned by a Signal Mountain woman will be part of an estate sale next weekend.
It's a pottery piece, not a painting, but Jim Blair of Blair's Estate Sales said it is a rare and valuable find.
He has placed its value at $35,000.
Mr. Blair said, "A lot of people don't know that Picasso also did pottery. He did about 350 pieces."
He said, "There is one other Picasso pottery piece in an art gallery somewhere in the U.S."
Mr. Blair said the piece "is dated and has an official stamp."
He said the owner found a number of her items at yard sales.
Mr. Blair said her attorney husband would come along on the trips, but became bored while waiting for her. She convinced him he needed to start his own collection. He then began searching for Royal Copley items and amassed a large collection that will also be in the sale.
The sale will be July 19, 20 and 21 with the location to be announced prior to the sale.
