An eight-piece set of bronzeware of Chinese origin has been brought home from Japan following five months of pursuit by Chinese authorities, the National Cultural Heritage Administration announced Tuesday.
They are among the most-valued sets of relics that have been successfully sought and brought back to China in recent years after their illegal trade on the international market was stopped.
The bronzeware were identified by researchers to be stolen items from ancient tombs dating back to the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 B.C.) located in Suizhou, central China’s Hubei Province.
