THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH’S HISTORICAL DOPPELGÄNGER: IS THIS
THE REAL VICTORIAN SHERLOCK?
We were notified today by a dealer of antique photography of
this amazing original Victorian photograph of a man from the 1840s who has more
than a passing resemblance to a certain actor we are familiar with. It is
currently being auctioned on eBay and is listed as, “A truly incredible unique early 1/6th plate daguerreotype photo of a
man who looks very very much like Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock, so much so
It is an original one of a kind silver over copper daguerreotype (the image is developed on a silvered coppered plate and not paper) dated c1845 and thus has not been tampered with in Photoshop.
There have been many historical images like this pop up of
other celebrities over the years, but we think this is one of the best yet. The
auction ends 2nd May, 2016 at 21:41:32 BST and you can bid on it HERE
