Unknown Vampire Killing Kit

A kind reader aware of my fondness for vampire killing kits sent this over. It's reportedly a scan from a Sotheby's auction catalog, but it doesn't look like any of the previous kits that have made their way around the web. Regardless, it's a well done piece of work that seems to incorporate several real antiques...or at least very well made counterfeits.

Very cool looking. Love the old box. Where does the garlic go?

I *think* the drawers hold loose components like garlic. It appears the kit consists of an oak stake, silver chased holy water bottle, bullet mold, and the ivory cross.

I've been trying to dig up some more information about this particular case, but so far I haven't had any luck.
