Large Number of Antiques Seized in Isfahan

 

 

Thursday, February 25, 1999

 

TEHRAN -- In an operation conducted to tackle smugglers by the police in Isfahan, large number of antiques were uncovered in a house. 

 

The discovered objects, said to be 110 pieces, include gold-filled crystal dishes, swords, manuscripts, silver necklaces, big gold-filled brass deers whose antiquity is said to date back to Safavid and Qajar eras. Colonel Vaseli, deputy for the police in Isfahan disclosed, "these antiques had been buried in the basement of an Isfahani citizen's house at the beginning of the 1979 Revolution".

"The man was a professional antique dealer', he said the discovered objects were only part of the real number and most probably some of them had been sold to the domestic or foreign customers. 

 

Moreover, Isfahan's police, in another operation managed to confiscate nine relics among which is a stone statue belonging to Elamite era (1500 BC).
