Canton Auction Barn is offering a $100 reward for information leading to an arrest for this stolen painting.

The owners of Canton Barn have reported that a painting stolen from the business earlier this month has been returned.

The cica 1880 8″x6″ oil painting on board, with an estimated value between $200 to $400, arrived at the auction gallery via U.S. mail on Thursday, said Susan Wacht Goralski, co-owner and business manger. It had been stolen from the auction gallery on Feb. 6 or 7.

“Huge thanks to all those who helped publicize the theft of our painting,”  Goralski said. “We’re certain we would never have seen it again if not for the sharing and spreading of the details of the theft through social media, news sources, and television. We are grateful and thankful.”

Police are investigating the theft, the first in the 50-plus years the Auction Barn has been in business. The piece will be auction once police are done with it.

Canton Barn, at 75 Old Canton Road, holds weekly Saturday night auctions at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m. See more at http://www.cantonbarn.com or https://www.facebook.com/CantonBarnAuctions
