Vampire kit comes to light

20 June 2012Written by ATG Reporter

A 19th century vampire-slaying kit will be just one of the unusual pieces for sale at Tennants on June 22.

The kit can be dated to a period after Bram Stoker wrote the famous novel Dracula in 1897, which popularised vampires and possibly brought about the production of kits such as this one.

It includes a mahogany casket that contains a mallet and stakes, percussion cap pistol, steel bullet mould, rosary beads, crucifix, glass bottles and a prayerbook dating back to 1857. Estimate: £1500-£2000.
