Thieves escaped with a haul of unusual silverware from a Hatfield home, leaving the owner deeply distressed.
Police have released pictures of items taken from an outbuilduing and a house in Grubbs Lane, as they have great sentimental value to the distraught owner.
They include a tanker with a decorative lid, three small hippopotamus statues, a five-inch tall beaker, a goblet marked “JMMG”, and a decorative spoon with Icelandic script.
The burglers also stole tools, a 50-piece bone handle cutlery set, a pocket watch, and die cast models of a Lamborghini and a Mercedes C class cars.
PC Nick Surridge said: “Many of these items are of great sentimental value to the victim who has been left deeply upset by the burglary.
