Theda’s right breast plate from her lost film Cleopatra was recently sold by auction house Julien’s for $22,500, more than 20 times the estimate. As amazing as that was, a seemingly identical item has now come up for auction at another auction house — Profiles in History. It’s also described as her right breast plate, though the estimate is $15,000 to $20,000 this time. I bet it’s all fake! It would be too cool if it were one of multiples from the movie wardrobes but chances are so low.
