In July 2007, it was decided to restitute this object to its rightful owner.
H.K.A.A. Carstens was the daughter of the warden of the Castle of Eutin and the widow of Dr. L. Salomon. In 1941, the SS told her that a Bishop’s staff and four chalices had to be returned to Germany as they were subject to 'Museumschutz'. After having been threatened with expropriation Mrs Carstens sold the objects to H. Posse. The proceeds of the sale amounted to Hfl. 42,500. After the war Mrs Carstens claimed the items as she had sold them under duress during the war. The objects were not returned to her because she could not repay the sum of Hfl. 42,500.
