Vintage Vampire Killing-Set

Schönes, über hundert Jahre altes Vampirvernichtungsset, ging neulich über den Tisch von Greg Martin Auctions für läppische 4800$. Hat ein amerikanischer GI im WWII aus einem Berliner Museum mitgehen lassen.

Extremely rare antique ivory vampire killing kit, consisting of an ornate ivory-mounted Christian cross integrating a steel, spring-loaded, .41 caliber single-shot percussion pistol, the center mounted with an ebony shield surmounted with a 8-pointed crown, the tips made from tiny semi-precious red stones. A ruby red five-pointed star adorns the center. The vampire pistol is contained in an ivory case, together with steel dagger blade which attaches to the end of the cross, an ivory cleaning rod, ivory powder bottle, and cap and ball supply. The entire case is made from fine elephant ivory and each element is engraved with letters representing the contents. According to consignor, this was reportedly one of four matching kits.
