Police are appealing after a £2,500 violin was stolen from a Jubilee line train.
The violin belonged to a 42 year-old musician from Motspur Park who was returning home after performing at a London theatre and boarded the train at Stratford at around 11.45pm on Friday 20th July.
He had four bags with him, including the violin. When he got off the train at Waterloo, just after midnight, he noticed his violin was missing.
Detective Constable Andy Jordan said: “Not only is the violin of considerable financial value but it was also of great sentimental value.
The victim has had the 1880’s violin for 30 years, since he was just 12 years-old. He had described knowing the violin so well, it had become like a good friend.”
The violin is full-sized from a German school from the late 19th century, with the label 'Percy Lee 1936'. It is golden in colour with a wide-striped two-piece backplane with a rippled dent near to the bottom. The tuning peg for the E-string is different to the other pegs.
There was a bow in the case, an octagonal stick with silver winding and leather at the handle.
