Mystery 'vampire-slaying kit' up for auction

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A "vampire-slaying kit" containing a pocket-sized pistol and a 19th century copy of the New Testament is going under the hammer.

The gothic-looking container, worth between £2,000 and £3,000, also comes packed with pliers, rosary and a bottle of shark's teeth.

Also inside the metal-bound box is an ivory-robed wolf carrying rosary beads, as well as a blue phial with mysterious contents and a silver-bladed pocket knife.

And inside the lid is an oval enamel painting that depicts the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

That would go great with my anti-werewolf kit. (A bottle of Manitoba wood ticks)

my anti-vampire kit contains K-pop albums, brightly colored sportswear, and DVDs of the High school Musical movies.

I saw a 'famous' vampire kit on Pawn Stars last week. This idea is probably trending.

Alice Cooper has probably already bought this kit.

If it's a real antique one it's kinda awesome, but like you said a lot of ''fresh'' ones are on the market...

Yeah, it looks like something put together out of an old apothecary chest and some brickabrac. Used to see a lot like those on some of the old livejournal communities.  Heck, I've got an antique holy water bottle I almost kind of want to use in one.
