Re: Mary, Queen of Scots execution rosary beads stolen
I visited Arundel Castle and saw the Queen of Scots Rosary.
I did not expect to see it and bought a postcard. Really sad that this historical item is lost for ever !
Oh, no, no, no! Again, another lost important historical item! And we can be grateful, if it ended with some socalled "collector", so that it maybe will survive to reappear once again...
Just by the way, the fifth suspect in connection with the Dresden theft was caught a few days ago. But no trace of the Saxon jewels.
Unfortunately, many pieces of interest to the "market" are not sufficiently secured! The German Museum Association recently published a guide for museum security. But security costs money. And there is a lack of it, especially when those in charge and responsible institutions play down the problem. Or believe that the presentation design would suffer from the security precautions. I've heard something like that before.
I can't help feeling angry and I am very sorry for the staff at Arundel Castle.
I was just thinking this this morning, and those crowns that were stolen from Sweden.
It's why I've always had the suspicion that the Crown Jewels on display in the Tower of London are replicas.
