Miguel Berrocal

Paloma jewelry chest and vanity
Spain, 1970-1973
nickel-plated bronze, mirrored glass, brass
22 w × 24½ d × 9 h in (56 × 62 × 23 cm)

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].

literature: Antologica Berrocal (1955-1984), Gallego, ppg. 220, 232-234

estimate: $25,000–30,000
result: $24,000
