As far as police appeals go, this is top-drawer stuff.
Officers in Plymouth are hoping to identify the owner of these paisley cerise satin briefs.
Sized 8-10, the knickers are believed to have been stolen as a trophy and police are keen to identify the victim.
Investigations so far indicate no signs of forced entry.
Detective Inspector Mike Cooper, from the Plymouth investigation team, said: "We are appealing to anyone who may have had these items stolen. They were found on 4 September 2013 and if they are linked to an offence it would have occurred near to this date.
"We believe other similar offences may not have been reported due to the form of entry coupled with the type of property stolen. Residents may simply think the items have been mislaid rather than stolen.
"Although we are concentrating our efforts in the Plympton area we are keeping an open mind as the offender may have committed offences in other areas."
A silver Yale-style key, probably fitting a PVC door has also been found.
Anyone who has any information that could assist with the investigation is asked to call DC Rachael Harris on 101 quoting EP/13/919, or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
- A 55-year-old man from Plympton has been arrested on suspicion of burglary and released on police bail until 10 February 2014.
