ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A reward of up to $1,500 is being offered for anyone that has information that leads to the recovery of two tiaras that were stolen from the Missouri History Museum.

The two tiaras were stolen from the museum in April. The Traveler's Indemnity Companies, an insurer for the museum is offering a reward of up to $1,500.

A spokesperson for the museum says after a routine check of the Missouri History Museum galleries, the collections staff discovered two artifacts were missing from the Seeking St. Louis exhibit. The Seeking St. Louis exhibit is a long-term exhibit located on the second floor of the Museum.

The items were two Veiled Prophet Ball tiaras dating from the 1890’s. They have been on display in this gallery since 2005.

The Missouri History Museum galleries are checked daily. Police were notified right away.

The artifacts taken were an 1894 Veiled Prophet Special Maid’s Crown and an 1896 Veiled Prophet Queen’s Crown. The crowns are made of gold and silver and adorned with gems. These artifacts have been in the Missouri Historical Society’s collection since the 1960’s.

Speculation is that the gems could be removed and that the metal could be melted.

If you have any information call CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-8477.
