“UNICORN DYONISIAQUE”

BY SALVADOR DALI, 1971

EXTREMELY RARE MUSEUM QUALITY PIECE 

THIS VALUABLE ARTWORK WAS CREATED BY SALVADOR DALI.  THE EDITION WAS LIMITED TO 300.  THE MEDIUM IS 8.7 TROY OUNCES OF SOLID 18 KARAT GOLD.  THE DIAMETER IS 8 INCHES.  SALVADOR DALI’S SIGNATURE IS PLATE SIGNED AND DATED 1971 WITHIN THE ARTWORK.

IT IS NOT CLEARLY DOCUMENTED IF 300 WERE EVER ACTUALLY MINTED AS THEY WERE SUBJECT TO SPECIAL REQUEST.  MOREOVER, MANY PEOPLE MELTED THESE DOWN IN THE EXUBERANT GOLD MARKET IN THE 1980’S TO LOCK IN THEIR LARGE PROFITS.  

SEVERAL YEARS AGO, THIS ARTWORK WAS LIGHTLY POLISHED BY A PROFESSIONAL GOLDSMITH IN THE LOS ANGELES JEWELRY DISTRICT WHO HAD WORKED IN ART CONSERVATION FOR THE SMITHSONIAN.  

THE ORIGINAL STORAGE CASE HAS BEEN DISCARDED IN EXCHANGE FOR A NEW STRONGER CASE. THE PROVENANCE ON THIS ARTWORK IS STRONG, CLEAR, AND WELL DOCUMENTED.  BID WITH CONFIDENCE.  A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY HAND SIGNED BY LAURENT ASHTON WILL BE INCLUDED WITH THIS SALE ESCROW IS ACCEPTED IF THE BUYER PAYS.  INSURANCE IS REQUIRED, THEREFORE, THE HIGHER SHIPPING EXPENSE.

THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO DO BUSINESS WITH YOU.
