Boston undefined U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will transfer an 18th-century Chinese Jadeite Tripod Covered Censer to the Harvard Art Museums at a ceremony on Tuesday, January 21st. The work of art disappeared from its display case at the Fogg Museum in 1979. In 2009 the censer reappeared in Hong Kong when it was listed for auction by fine art auctioneer Sotheby’s.

At the transfer ceremony on Tuesday, January 21st, 2014, ICE officials, representatives of the museums and the U.S. Attorney’s office will formally commemorate the censor’s safe return to the Harvard Art Museums.
