THIEVES made off with a 123 year old Eisteddfod chair from a house in Bethesda.
The raiders took the 1889 Corwen Eisteddfod chair from the house in Coed Y Parc between midday on October 9 and early evening on October 10.
The chair is 120cm tall, inscribed “Corwen 1889.” The words “Eisteddfod Gadeiriol” and the Awen symbol of three lines are also inscribed on it.
Investigating officer DC Arwel Jones of Bangor CID said: “A ground floor window was forced open and the quantity of items stolen suggests to me a vehicle off some kind must have been used to take the items away.”
The thieves’ haul also included an oak bureau, an oak table and several other items including brass keys, lamps, a bed warmer and brass Buddha’s heads, paintings and other ornaments.
DC Jones asked anyone who was in Coed Y Parc and saw any suspicious activity, or who may have know who was responsible for the break-in, to call North Wales Police.
He added: “I would also appeal to those who deal in, or purchase antique furniture to be alert particularly as some of the articles are unique and very distinctive.
“If you have been offered property of this description recently please contact the Police.”
Anyone with information should contact DC Jones on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
