    Description

    Hilton Sisters - Siamese Twins (Quigley Publications, 1925). Fine on Linen. Trimmed One Sheet (28" X 41.75").
    This is a stock vaudeville poster for the famous Hilton Twins of Freaks fame, most likely for a tour just after they sued their "managers" to gain self-representation. Their lives were fascinating and horrific at the same time. Exploited almost since birth, they should have had millions for retirement, but died in poverty. Especially interesting was the fact that after medical science progressed to the point where they could easily have been successfully separated, they refused, vowing to die together, which they did. Professional restoration has been applied to address tears into the interior, a couple of small chips, and slight edge wear. The side and top borders have unaddressed trims that do not extend into the printing and this does not affect the overall presentation of the poster in any way. The borders have been airbrushed.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
