Kit includes: 3 Wooden stakes, silver tipped arrows with crossbow, Holy Bible, Sterling silver bladed dagger, sterling silver blade short sword, box of rosaries,a leather wrapped mirror, sterling silver and mahogany crucifix and various vials including silver nitrate, Holy water, garlic powder and various other vials. This is the same kit featured on the first episode of Discovery Channel's "Auction Kings" back in 2010. This is one of the finest kits to come to market with excellent providence. Measures 19.5" x 11.5" x 5.75" Vampires have long been the stuff of legends – going back to the 10th century in Europe (or more) – and may have found their way to this country with immigrants in the 1700s. They were popularized in the early 1800s in Eastern Europe and then in 1897 when Bram Stoker put a face on them in his novel 'Dracula' and further in F. W. Murnau's 1921 'Nosferatu' seen here on Auction Kings https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=32&v=pk_1t3jJmsE
