    Description

    Hilton Sisters - Siamese Twins (Quigley Publications, 1925). One Sheet (28" X 42").
    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. This stone lithography image of the twins was printed by the Quigley Company, Kansas City, Missouri. Professional restoration has addressed creasing, chips and small tears in the borders, and a tear in one of the legs. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
