This is a photo of some of my bat and Dracula jewelry collecion. Some are contemporary, some vintage and some antique. One of the oldest pieces is the art deco V-shaped cape collar. It comes apart behind the bat with a buckle. It is an unmarked piece and has dark colored (Onyx?) cabachons. My guess is that it is possibly German or French ca 1920's. Below that is a silverplate bat cuff bracelet (possibly Mexican). Above the cape collar is a pin that was designed for the Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 Bram Stoker's Dracula movie. The pin has the Dracula logo made with red Swarovski crystals with a dangling silverplated bat and another dangling Bram Stoker hanging from that. It was made in limited quantities for cast and crew and not available to the general public. At the bottom of the photo is a Chinese silver belt with dragons, bats and symbols. There are some bat belt buckles to the left of the photo and carved jade, opal, ivory, bone, amber, sterling, copper, glass and brass pins and buttons on the right.
