De Morgan Art Found

William de Morgan - Two-handled Lustre UrnThree William de Morgan treasures stolen from London's De Morgan Centre last July have been recovered by police and returned to the Centre. The thieves used a ladder to enter through a toilet window! They haven't been collared and the Met's Art and Antiques Unit is still investigating the burglary. A conservative estimate of the value of the recovered ceramics is £150,000. Let's hope the De Morgan Foundation has sorted out its security since the theft.
