Stolen India silver of 'priceless historic importance'





Silverware stolen from the British stately home of the former Viceroy of India Lord Curzon is of "priceless historical importance", officials say.

The National Trust charity says the stolen objects provide a unique insight into the Raj and are irreplaceable.

The artefacts, including a Burmese bowl, caskets and a wine cooler were stolen from Kedleston Hall.

They were acquired by the viceroy for the 1903 Delhi Durbar - the celebration to mark a royal coronation.
