How are we to know that a Jagtstole on offer is a stolen one? It would be extremely helpful to have decent preferably high resolution photos of the chairs, because the grain of oak will be a fingerprint.

Otherwise all Jagstolen sold in the future will be subject to suspicion, which simply means that none of them will be. I mean unless the thieves are so stupid as to offer a pair "formerly from a restaurant in Denmark".

Hopefully they can heavily advertise the theft locally, and find out that a couple teenagers just did it for kicks and the chairs are okay

Is there really much of a market for hot chairs? It seems like it would be a relatively inconvenient and unprofitable thing to deal with, from a criminal standpoint.

tested alarm
A week ago, namely an incident which indicates that the break has been planned.

- An attempt was made to throw a rock through a window, but the windows are in two layers, and the inner pane has lifted the stone. At first I thought that it was pranks, but now I am sure you have done it to test whether there was alarm, says Per Hallundbæk, which says that the alarm was triggered by the break, but the thieves have been quick .

- They have gone targeting the two chairs. There is not stolen second, so it's definitely commissioned work, he says.

Insurance and police monitors
The theft is reported to the police, and it will be investigated by local police in Faaborg, and Police Commissioner Jens Friis Christensen says that it has not been possible to ensure trace in connection with the burglary.

But it does not mean that the chairs are not found.

Per Hallundbæk says that the police has notified the theft to the major auction houses and larger antique stores.

Therefore, there is a high probability that the chairs are offered at e.g. Here you have a series of procedures that will ensure that there will be put stolen goods on auction.

Among other things, requires the auction house that the goods can be traced back to the seller, and the seller must be able to explain how he came into possession of the goods. also has a so-called watch out list, which contains information from the police about the theft cases similar to that of Falsled Kro.

There is also not safe, it can manage to sell through the Blue Avis or At least not without being detected.

For several insurance companies and the police keep an eye on whether there will be stolen goods for sale via the channels.

Denmark is a tiny country so it would be relatively easy to get the news out to resellers and Danes are a pretty honest group of people in general. Seems like all the thieves would have to do, though, is bury the chairs in a container going to someplace in the world where there are buyers who don't care if some hotel restaurant in Denmark wants them back. Jerks!

Here is a link to an article. I went out looking to see if there happens to be a high resolution photo of the chairs in question on the Internet, and it appears there is not, or it certainly is not easy to find.

Object: your question is why i asked about good photos. I am assuming there are not so few Jagtstole made by Erhard Rasmussen in existence that the precise owner of every copy is known. Therefore, unless it can be proven that a Jagtstole for sale is indeed one of the precise stolen pair, say by comparing the grain pattern, then they are not a "hot chairs".
