Paloma jewelry chest and vanity
Spain, 1970-1973

This rare design unfolds from a minimal box, becoming a mirrored jewelry chest with sixteen felt-lined drawers and hinged mirrors. The central motif is an homage to Paloma Picasso, with the brass head becoming a wearable bracelet. Although numbered 2000, the limited edition was never completed and far fewer examples exist. Impressed signature to vanity: [iara 369/2000 Berrocal Berrocal] and impressed to bracelet: [Berrocal 3099].
