From the NY Post:
A mahogany writing table from the late 1820s, two elegant perfume bottles dating back almost 200 years and a collection of antique jewels were among 43 artifacts swiped when the city Parks Department renovated the storied Dyckman Farmhouse Museum, The Post has learned.
City records obtained yesterday by The Post reveal an alarming list of period pieces, lavish décor and jewelry stolen when the Parks Department and the nonprofit Historic House Trust hauled belongings out of the Inwood museum for an interior renovation.
Thieves also nabbed two pins made of gold, sheet metal and diamonds and dating as far back as 1800. One of them was adorned with 13 diamonds.
Also stolen was a cherry cradle owned by the Dyckman family.
A museum official said it was impossible to assign a value to the artifacts.
