Have you heard about the Basano vase ?

The Cursed Basano Vase

Around the 15th century, the Basano Vase was crafted from carved silver for an Italian bride as a wedding gift in a Northern village close to Napoli. For unknown reasons, she was killed on her wedding night. In her dying breath, she wished for vengeance while clutching her Basano vase. The vase was passed from one family member to another bringing mysterious death to anyone who owned it. Eventually, the vase was disappeared or buried on sacred ground by a priest only to be rediscovered in 1988 along with a note stating, “beware, this vase brings death” and sold to an auction house. 

Beware, this vase brings death

The first buyer was a local pharmacist, he mysteriously died just after three months of owning the vase. Immediately, his family sold the vase to a surgeon, a non-believer of curses and died after two months. Yet again, the vase was sold to an archaeologist for his private collection of renaissance artefacts and died of an unknown infection after three months later. The family decided to sell the famously recognised vase for its bad luck, especially after it claimed the life of the new owner in only one month. In desperation, the families tossed the vase out of the window, nearly hitting a policeman on his head, who quickly fined him for a disorderly conduct. The owner agreed to accept the ticket but declined to take the vase back.


The policeman offered the vase to several museums, but they all refused to take it because of the curse. Eventually, the police buried the vase in a lead coffin in an undisclosed location or on the grounds of an ancient cemetery. The Basano vase is waiting to be unearthed by an unsuspecting victim so it can start the killing spree again.
