£20,000 reward for stolen wine antique

  • Tuesday 8 September 2009

A £20,000 reward has been offered for a pair of stolen decanter holders.

Have you seen these Decanter holders?

The nineteenth-century silver wine wagons are believed to be worth as much as £200,000, and are only one of two sets ever made.

The theft took place in London last year and, with no leads so far, rightful owner Graeme Lyons has offered a £20,000 bounty for their return.

Lyons told decanter.com, ’I would be very grateful for any information that could lead to finding these decanters. They were family heirlooms,and very rare and unique. If anyone has seen them, I urge them to get in touch.’

If you have any information, contact Mr Lyons at familyfirst@orange.net
