A SET of 19th century pistols and a collection of antiques were stolen from a house in south Liverpool.

The burglars broke into a house in Croxteth Road, Sefton Park, and took four early 19th guns, a Watson black and brass microscope, a marble mantle clock, several gold wrist and pocket watches.

The gold wrist watch has a distinctive white hexagonal face with a slim-fit bracelet while the two Roman numeral gold pocket watches are attached to gold chain fobs.

The break in happened on Wednesday, March 24.

The guns cannot be fired or converted.

Detective Constable Gareth Jones of the Liverpool South burglary team, said: Although old, none of these items are worth a sizeable amount of money but they are of great sentimental value to the owner who is keen to see them returned."
