GUEST: It was the day after Picasso died, and my husband said, "If we're going to buy a Picasso, now is the time to do it."
APPRAISER: You're kidding me, So you got them the day after he died?
GUEST: The day after he died.
APPRAISER: I think it's a wonderful pair. It is indeed a hand-signed lithograph by Picasso. But a lot of people might not know that he also made ceramics.
GUEST: I didn't until then.
APPRAISER: So to put the two together, I think at auction you have about $23,000 worth of Picassos here. Better than the stock market, I'll tell you that.
