Brooklyn Museum Says Trenton Unsafe Home For Vase

The Trenton City Museum has returned a vase it had borrowed from the Brooklyn Museum after the New York institution said Trenton wasn’t a safe place for it.

The director of the Trenton museum was laid off in September as the city cut costs amid a financial crunch. Trenton officials put an intern in charge of the little-known museum.

The vase was produced by Trenton Potteries Co. for the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. The Brooklyn Museum loaned it to Trenton more than a year ago.

At the time, the director of the Trenton museum was trying to exhibit the vase and three others together for the first time since 1904. The plan has since been shelved.

The Times of Trenton (http://bit.ly/yNbL5R ) reports the vase was returned on Tuesday.
