$25,000 Reward Offered For Rare Clock Stolen In Chicago

CHICAGO (AP) — A New Orleans antique dealer is offering a $25,000 to anyone who turns in a rare, diamond-encrusted clock stolen in Chicago last month.

The Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday that M.S. Rau Antiques in New Orleans offered the reward if the clock is returned in pristine condition and working order to Chicago police. The clock is worth $425,000 and was stolen from an antique show at Chicago's Merchandise Mart on May 21.

Authorities say two women and a man approached a booth at the show. The man and one woman distracted employees while the other woman took the clock.

The clock contains mother of pearl, gold, crystal, diamonds and sapphires. It's 5 1/2-inches wide and 8-inches tall.
