Valuable pottery collection found in deceased reclusive’s house

Published on June 9th, 2009 | by Admin


When a reclusive Florida-resident died and his home was entered to catalogue items to be sold, a valuable collection of ancient pots was found, some one which show evidence of looting. Now a search is on to indentify the pots and return them to their country of origin.

“The minute I walked in,” she said, “I knew immediately the reason this man didn’t have company into his home. (The pieces) were some of the most beautiful artifacts I’ve seen outside a museum. I knew right away some had to have been looted. Some (of the designs) I’d never seen before, they were so rare.

“It was a jaw dropping experience.”

She estimated that some of the objects didn’t just pre-date Christopher Columbus, but Christ.
