Taxidermy items and oil paintings - including two paintings believed to be worth about £10,000 - have been stolen in Bures.
It happened at an outbuilding on Saturday at about 11.30pm.
An offender entered the premises, made an untidy search and stole various stuffed animals including a wildebeest, impala, panther, warthog, iguana and beaver, and a clock decorated with antlers and horns.
Several oil paintings were also stolen including a huntsman and four hounds, a girl pitching hay, a huntsman and single hound and a white and brown dog with French writing in the background.
The paintings of a huntsman and four hounds and a huntsman and a single hound are believed to be by artist John Nost Sartorius and worth about £10,000 for both.
A spokeswoman for the police said the stuffed animals were heads on plaques, apart from the smaller ones such as the beaver.
Anyone with information relating to this crime should contact Pc Lloyd Shelley from Sudbury on 101 quoting SU/13/2144 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
