The Three Siegrists Carte de Visite

The Three Siegrists Carte de Visite


New York: C. Henkel, c.1880. 11x6.5 cm. Carte de visite. Slight soiling. Overall very good.

The Three Siegrists, or the Siegrist Brothers, performed as circus acrobats. Not much is available on the brothers, though they do appear to have traveled with John B. Dorris's Great Inter-Ocean Museum, Menagerie, and Circus in 1883. First known performance of the Siegrists was 1879, and last located was 1886. They were most likely French. (352)
