Q. What do you call vampires who ring doorbells?
A. Dead ringers.
A bad joke, but a cool Christmas gift. What Bela Lugosi fan wouldn’t want a replica of the Ring of Dracula, bearing the Count’s crest and cast from an original prop ring?
Here are the details from amazon.com: “The Ring of Dracula Elite Edition Prop Replica: A high quality, officially licensed replica of The Ring of Dracula, bearing the Count’s crest. This signet style ring prop is one of the hallmarks of the classic on-screen aristocratic vampire Count. Cast from an original prop ring with exacting attention to detail, this stunning Elite Edition replica is crafted from sterling silver and inset with a genuine semi-precious Carnelian “blood” stone. The original prop has an unmatched provenance to the most famous on screen vampire. Since its first appearance in “The House of Frankenstein” in 1944, the Dracula ring, or a copy of it, has adorned the fingers of some of the most admired actors to have portrayed Dracula, including John Carradine, Bela Lugosi and Sir Christopher Lee. For several decades the ring was also one of the prized possessions of the late writer, publisher and fan extraordinaire, Forrest J. Ackerman. This replica was cast from the prop in Mr. Ackerman’s collection. The mark of “THE” vampire, The Ring of Dracula Elite Edition will be a valuable addition to any collection. Each Elite Edition replica ring comes in a handsome presentation storage box, housed within custom designed packaging and includes a certificate of authenticity. This product is officially licensed by Universal Studios. This Elite Edition replica ring is being hand produced as a strictly limited edition of just 600 pieces worldwide. The Carnelian stone used is a natural product and therefore some slight variance in color and density is completely normal. No two stones will be exactly identical. Ring Face Dimensions 1.33” x 1.02” and Ring Band Size 10 1/4 USA.”
