Video: The Basano Vase Paradox That No One Can Explain

VIDEO: The Basano Vase Paradox That No One Can Explain

This vase looked like nothing special. If you saw it somewhere in an antique store, you’d hardly give it a second glance. The vase itself is a paradox. Even though numerous websites list it as one of the most haunted objects in history, people know almost nothing about the vase itself or its whereabouts. However, there IS something that is known.

The first mention of the vase goes back to the 15th century. Legend has it that this piece of art was crafted in a small Italian town. It was supposed to be a wedding gift for a beautiful young bride delivered to her anonymously the night before the wedding. The woman believed it was a sign of good luck, but the vase turned out to be quite the opposite...

- The bride never appeared at her own wedding – she was found lying on the floor in her room, the vase clutched tightly in her cold hands. Her untimely demise was never explained.
- Not long after the incident with the bride, another family member got hold of the Basano Vase. Unfortunately, that person didn't have much time to enjoy the exquisite silver jar because they passed away shortly afterwards.
- According to some records, an enigmatic priest was the one to lock the artifact away. Other people believe that the family simply buried the vase and tried to forget about this nightmare.
- Nothing was heard about the vase for several centuries. That is, until one fateful day in 1988, when the cursed object reared its ugly head again, bringing along its familiar friends: mystery and tragedy.
- There’s no specific location or even name, but it's said that a young man dug the vase up in his back yard. The details of this discovery vary from story to story.
- Its new owner was a pharmacist. But the mysterious curse had already found its next victim. Only three months later, the pharmacist fell to some mysterious ailment.
- The vase continued to change hands, leaving a seemingly endless trail of death in its wake. It's unclear how many more lives the vase claimed, but one sale seemed to put an end to it all!
- At first, things went as usual: the new owner succumbed to some quick and mysterious illness after coming into possession of the vase. But this time, their family didn’t sell it.
- The police did what anyone else would: they offered it to a museum. But the vase’s reputation was already well known, so no museum would take it.
- In any case, after museums refused to take the vase, it's said that the police got rid of it. But again, opinions differ and the details are unclear.
- Any sources you find have the same vague descriptions of the bride, the anonymous 1988 man, pharmacist, doctor, archeologist, police officer – all unnamed.
- It's obvious that there is much more to the Basano Vase than the stories tell us. Its inexplicable origin and untimely demise of those who owned the object look like something of either sheer coincidence or pure legend.

    All those who said it wasn't scary will be cursed.

    More mysterious than spooky, I've heard off cursed objects before but some items that were tested came up positive for being made of or having traces of materials such as radioactive isotopes that were found to be lethal if not extremely dangerous to be exposed to.

    I was just blank about this vase before I saw I saw the video. I never ever knew about this mysterious object ever existed! I love this YouTube channel and get a lot of general knowledge from here.

    I'm amazed that the guy could read the note after a couple of centuries. Not only would the writing be different but the language would be different as well as languages tend to change considerably after that amount of time.

    And you know "basano" in Greek means pain, or torture

    It’s not shocking if you figure it wasn’t silver, it was plutonium! That “curse” is radiation poisoning.
