German museum releases photos of some of the jewelries stolen in the ‘world’s biggest heist’

Advertisements

Police have released the first images of items stolen from Dresden Castle during Monday’s dramatic heist in Germany.

The treasures represent just a fraction of the over 100 artifacts believed to have been taken in the raid, which saw thieves smashing a glass display at the castle’s Green Vault before fleeing.

The announcement however demonstrates the grandeur contained within the museum’s celebrated collection and hints at the scale of the loss.

Among the items revealed so far are a sword, a string of pearls and collection of priceless 18th-century jewels containing thousands of individual diamonds. Almost all of the artifacts were made during the rule of Frederick Augustus III, the last Elector of Saxony (later known as Frederick Augustus I, the first king of Saxony) and were mostly created by the court jewelers Jean Jacques Pallard and Christian August Globig, along with the latter’s son August Gotthelf Globig.
