Antique Vampire Hunter Chest Auctioned in UKJul 112020
The relic, which has sparked a lot of interest on social media, is estimated to fetch £ 2,000-3,000 (about $ 2,500-3,700).
A mysterious chest from a 19th century vampire hunter will go up for auction in Dervyshire, UK, reports the official website of the Hansons Auctioneers house.
The ancient box, lined inside with red silk and decorated with a painting representing the resurrection of Jesus Christ, contains inside everything a vampire hunter needs: a small pistol, three crucifixes, a copy of the New Testament of the year 1842, a rosary, a silver knife and three jars, one of them full of shark teeth.
Its owner, who prefers to remain anonymous, bought the relic three years ago at an antique fair. First, he really liked its gothic look, but when he saw what was inside, he understood that it had to be done with it.
The chest will go up for auction on July 16 and the bid will last until July 21. It is estimated that it could reach 2,000-2,000 pounds (about 2,500–3,700 US dollars) at auction, given the interest it has generated among users of social networks.
