Historians have tracked Lily’s background to the early 1600s, unearthing reports of occult practices, pagan rituals, and warding rights imported from Europe by the Dutch Colonists of Lower Manhattan. Handmade figurines like Lily were left out to frighten off local spirits and new world ghosts, an archaic custom dating back to the Vikings and the Romans. The conquers of foreign lands brought with them a piece of their folklore as protection. The original Lily was delivered to a paranormal research group from its owner, who stated: “I found her outside my door one morning, with a note that said to not put her by mirrors or in the same room I sleep in. I gave her a flashlight so she could drain the batteries, but instead she made my lights flicker at night. My cat would not go near her, and my dog would just stare. At times I would be woken up from a dead sleep smelling burnt toast, or sometimes a sweet fruity smell. Her favorite color is red. That is all I know.”
Use Lily to ward off other ghosts and ghouls around Halloween. Put Lily on a porch, hang her on a door, put her on a shelf, or use her to scare friends, family, and children. Make Lily move around and appear in a different place for others to find each morning. Terrify children and scare your friends and family. Lily’s a new Halloween season tradition and great for the entire year. Lily will ship within 3 business days of your order.
Upon further research, the doll was crafted to mimic the infamous Elizabeth Bàthory de Eased, and in doing so, the tradition stated she contains part of the Countess’ menace. Báthory was a noblewoman condemned in the 1600s for killing over 650 people, and is referred to as the ‘Blood Countess’ and ‘Countess Dracula’.
