The Louvre Museum has found two missing pieces of art since 1983

The Louvre Museum announced on Wednesday that it had recovered two pieces of armor from the 16th century that were stolen in 1983 and will be reopening them to the public.

The pieces are a helmet and an iron inlay with gold inlay, made in the Milan region in the second half of the 16th century.

On May 1, 1983, the shop window in which the pieces were found was destroyed and the circumstances of the disappearance are unknown.

The pieces were on inheritance in Bordeaux in mid-January when the antiques expert involved in the process drew the police’s attention to his suspicions about their origin.
