Hi Andrew,
I was wondering what kind of value an After Picasso print of Jarron con Flores has?  It is not believed to be offset and the back of the print notes that it was printed for W and J Sloane, Los Angeles.  The upper left corner is dated 7.12.59 and the ink of the yellow parts appear to sit above the paper and not "bled" in.  
Thanks for any help

Answer
Dear Edwin,

W and J Sloane, Los Angeles was a furniture and rug store that catered to a high clientele. Oftentimes companies would commission reproductions to be made of famous works by artists to sell in their stores, and these are what people in the art market call reproductions and have only decorative value meaning they have no resell value. Your particular work would be worth anywhere from $5-$30 depending on what someone is willing to pay for the quality.

The high market value of Picasso's are in their hand-signatures, which there are some great examples of here: http://www.masterworksfineart.com/inventory/picasso . Sorry it is not better news.
