Greyhound sniffs out stolen bows worth £110,000

Thursday, 21 October 2010

A case of antique violin bows that was stolen from bow maker Peter Oxley has been found. A greyhound called Angel discovered the collection of French and English bows while being taken for a walk in a park in Ipswich. The eleven bows, including examples by Charles Peccatte and Etienne Pajeot, and a very rare 1870 Pierre Simon, were stolen from a London-to-Norwich train on 4 October.
