Famous musician sobs at losing 300-year-old Stradivarius violin

42630.jpegA violin worth £1.2million was snatched from a world famous musician as she stopped for a sandwich outside a train station.

Korean-born Min-Jin Kym sobbed to staff at Euston, London, when she discovered her 300-year-old Stradivarius violin and two bows worth £67,000 had been stolen, Mirror.co.uk reports.

Kym hadn't just lost the tool of her trade; the crook had made off with the most expensive of musical instruments, a violin made by Antonio Stradivarius in 1696. If that weren't enough, the case also contained a bow worth £62,000 by 19th-century French luthier Dominique Peccatte and a, er, £5,000 cheapie by the Bazin school.

British Transport Police have issued a public appeal for the return of the items and Kym's insurer, Lark Insurance Broking Group, are offering a £15,000 reward for information that leads to their recovery. "

Although [these goods] are extremely valuable, it would be very difficult to sell them," said detective inspector Andy Rose. Distinctive repair marks and a specially moulded chinstrap mean the violin and bows "will be easily recognised as stolen property", according to The Guardian.
