Porcelain in British museums 'looted by Nazis'





Two pieces of fine 18th century porcelain currently housed in British museums and worth more than £10,000 apiece were looted by the Nazis, a Government-appointed panel has ruled.

They include a 12-inch wide Viennese dish described as "one of the most important examples of early Viennese porcelain in the British Museum collection".

The other is a "monteith", a bowl filled with water used to cool glasses, held at Cambridge University's Fitzwilliam Museum since 1960.
