The curator at Haslemere Educational Museum believes that the ornate Hungarian embroidered sheepskin wedding jacket dating from the 1920s and an 18th century wooden Norwegian corner cabinet, may have been stolen to order.

The items were found to be missing on Monday, February 20 and curator Julia Tanner believes they were taken some time between the preceding Wednesday and Saturday.

The museum's peasant art collection, from which they were taken, features rare examples of rural craftsmanship gathered from across Europe before the First World War.
