Stolen Art Alert
An Elliptical Turquoise-Decorated Silver Box was Stolen from an Albuquerque, NM Gallery, on May 4, 2012 . An image is posted atwww.ATADA.org/theft.html#terry2012-1. Please check out the images posted on our Theft Alert Page and familiarize yourself with them so that you will be prepared if someone offers any of these for sale. The lesson from our previous alerts is clear - if there are items on the ATADA theft alert page or on the ATADA Caveat Emptor page, they are very difficult to sell, and must be kept out of sight, even in a home collection. Note that there is no statute of limitations on stolen property in the USA. Let the buyer beware! Please look at these images and check anything that is offered to you against the images on the ATADA Theft Alert and the ATADA Caveat Emptor pages.
