Sometime between January 27 and 28, a painting valued at between $4,500 and $5,000 was taken from an antiques shop here. The painted silk mourning picture in original period gilt frame measures approximately 22 by 20 inches, with an eglomise glass liner.
A paper on the base of the urn reads, “Sacred To The Memory Of Mrs Mary Warren, Roxbury , Jan 14 A.D. 1803 In The Ninetieth Year Of Her Age. The Name Of Righteous Shall Be Heard In Everlasting Remembrance.”
According to the owner of the painting, there is paint loss at the bottom of the eglomise glass liner. It is believed that Roxbury most likely refers the town in Massachusetts.
Anyone having information about this item is asked to contact Officer Paul Murphy of the Frenchtown Borough Police Department at 908-996-4820.
