(BBC News) A Norwegian art gallery has admitted losing a Rembrandt etching worth up to £5,400 in the post, after trying to save money on a courier and insurance.
The Soli Brug Gallery in Greaaker, 80 km south of Oslo, bought the Dutch master's Lieven Willemsz, van Coppenol, Writing-Master from a British dealer.
The etching, made around 1658, is now lost in the Norwegian postal system.

The gallery's chairman Ole Derje said they had used regular mail as couriers and insurance were "quite expensive".
