Porcelain Staffordshire figures and a painting were stolen in a burglary at a coastal village.
It happened between 10am on June 30 and 11am on Friday, July 6 at a property on the Main Road in Brancaster Staithe, near Hunstanton.
The thieves broke into the house through a ground floor bathroom window after they initially tried to force open a back window and French door, where they left jemmy marks.
Eight porcelain Staffordshire figures were stolen, which included a shepherd and sheep, a sailor and a barrel, sailors with a girl, three porcelain pastel burning cottages and a man and woman under a tree.
The painting showed a marsh scene at Wells.
Anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity should contact DC Richard Moden at King’s Lynn CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
