Two works of art, dating from the middle of the 16th century, which were stolen more than 35 years ago, have returned to the Louvre Museum in Paris.
The two artworks are a helmet and the back of the “Renaissance Knight” shield, according to what the museum confirmed, the day before yesterday.
The two artworks, decorated with gold and silver, disappeared on the night of May 31, 1983, under circumstances that remain unclear.
The two artworks were donated to the museum by the Rothschilds in 1922.
The two artworks appeared a few weeks ago on a property in Bordeaux.
The French police database of stolen cultural property (TRIMA) currently contains about 100,000 lost artworks.
