Police are appealing for information after burglars stole valuable silverware from a rural home in Colyford, East Devon.
Crooks entered the house at around 3am on Thursday, November 4, and stole a number of items.
They included an antique solid silver napkin ring in a navy-blue hinged box, and an antique silver mustard pot with a blue glass lining.
A more modern solid silver bonbon dish with a gilt lining was also taken.
The offenders also stole a Tiffany ballpoint pen with the initials ‘Y&R’ on the clip and housed in a Tiffany box, plus a silver-coloured wire wine basket.
A force spokesperson said: “Police are investigating the burglary and appealing to members of the public to keep an eye out for the stolen items at local car boot sales, second-hand shops or antique fairs.
“Anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the area at the time of the offence is also asked to contact police via firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 101, quoting crime reference CR/096421/21.”
