Question
I have a Picasso, "Guitar, Glass and Fruit dish" and it belonged to my deceased aunt. It was purchased in Zurich and published by Shorewood. It is very old and I was wondering if it is worth anything.

Answer
These are very conservative prices if it is indeed an original Pablo Picasso, but you should contact the following auction house/galleries.
