Six years ago, a British duchess despaired over the disappearance of her bag of jewelry in Glasgow Airport. No ordinary jewels, the contents of the bag included a Victorian diamond tiara and totaled £100,000.
She reported the missing items to the police and to the Art Loss Register (ALR), but as the years passed, her hope of ever recovering them
dimmed. Hence her surprise when she spotted the tiara and a Cartier brooch in a Scottish auction catalog, slated to be sold on May 30.
