The recent jailing (for just 12 months) of two thieves who stole a Henry Moore sundial from the Henry Moore Foundation has revealed the amazingly low stakes involved. After it was stolen, the thieves sold the piece, valued at £500,000, to a scrap metal dealer for just £46. More details in the Antiques Trade Gazette.
