If the "estate is closed", this means there is no longer any estate nor are there any executors, but rather there would have been a decree of distribution which would dictate who is entitled to what. If there was no specification as to which heir was to receive which item of personal property, then it could possibly be necessary to initiate a civil action to recover half the value of whatever it was that was taken.
