On Tuesday 19 February 2013, officers arrested a man on suspicion of burglary.
Detective Constable Andy Marsh, of Weymouth CID, said: “Various items of cutlery have been recovered as a result of this arrest.
“I am now in a position to release photos of these items.
“The teaspoons with the gold inlays and engravings are particularly recognisable and may have been presented to somebody in the past. We hope that someone recognises them and will help us to find the rightful owners.
“It is possible that the owners have not yet realised that this cutlery is missing.
“Please contact us as soon as possible if you have any information that may assist with my investigation.”
A 44-year-old Weymouth man has been released on police bail while enquires continue.
