A majority of the Commission's cases and restitutions are handled and achieved without publicity, at the wish of the claimants. One of the Commission's publicly recorded restitutions was of the gold-glasses below.
In 2008 the Commission for Looted Art in Europe negotiated the restitution from the Israel Museum Jerusalem of three gold-glass bases dating from the fourth century AD to the heirs of the Działyńska Collection at Gołuchów Castle in Poland. The gold-glass bases were seized by the Nazis in 1941 and their location was unknown to the family for over 60 years.
Two case studies - the Dorotheum Case and the Glanville Case - illustrate the type of work which the Commission for Looted Art in Europe undertakes on behalf of claimants. Click on the left hand menu to read about them.
