Actor and director Sir Richard Attenborough's celebrated collection of Picasso ceramics will sell at Sotheby's London on November 22.
Lord and Lady Attenborough regularly travelled to the south of France on holiday with their family.
They began collecting Picasso ceramics in 1954, often buying them directly from the artist himself.
A Grand vase aux femmes nues is the headline lot, with an estimate of £250,000-350,000 ($330,717-463,004).
Severine Nackers, Sotheby's Picasso ceramics expert, said: "This is quite simply the best collection of its kind in private hands, infused with the sheer joy that it gave Lord Attenborough and his delight in Picasso's impish sense of humour."
