East Devon: Silverware swiped in burglary at rural home in Colyford

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.
