      These kits were serious business in Eastern Europe during the early 1800's. This one, was made about 1850 and sold at Sotheby's about 10 years ago for $12,000. It is a Vampire Killing Kit and were sold to travelers at the time.

      Thanks Dave. A really interesting collection.

      MOST of these were created in the 20th century from various unrelated (and lesser quality) pieces.

      The "creation" and marketing as "Vampire Killing Kits" found lots of buyers when the individual parts had little to no desirability.

      Buyers beware!
