Roth explained how the vault was protected by 'invisible' security systems, but warned that the biggest danger was information leaking out from inside.  

The collection dates back to 1723, while the Dresden royal palace which houses it was first built in 1533. 

The Green Vault gets its name from the green-coloured columns and decoration in some of the rooms.  

The museum and palace were rebuilt after the devastating Allied bombing of Dresden in World War II. Some of the items were looted by Soviet troops in 1945, but later returned. 

Only part of the collection was on display during the Cold War, when Dresden was part of communist East Germany. 

However, the museum was extensively rebuilt in the 2000s and its two exhibitions now form one of the 'best-preserved treasuries in Europe', its website says.
