Cat. #001516211: DAISY & VIOLET HILTON

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

While one of the conjoined Hilton sisters typically signed on behalf of both, with their names hyphenated-- as if they were one person-- we offer here a spectacular set of 8x10-inch black and white portraits by Bloom of Chicago, individually signed in black fountain pen in their distinct hands and inscribed to inveterate autograph hound Howard Davis at Boston's Colonial Theater in the late 1930s. One writes, "To Howard, May you find the happiness you deserve, Daisy." The other writes, "To Howard, just to remind you that I have loved you always, Dear. Your Violet." In fine condition, with gentle edgewear. Celebrated Siamese twins Daisy and Violet Hilton, who started out playing saxophones on the vaudeville and sideshow circuits, memorably appeared in Tod Browning's horror classic Freaks (1932) and later starred in the voyeuristic biopic Chained for Life (1952).
