In contrast, Jeton makes his mark through sheer elegance - these unostentatious sensations also earned hearty applause.
Münchner Merkur on the centenary programme "100 Years of Circus Krone"
Jeton – half French, half German – is entitled to see himself as the darling of his audiences. His forehead and the tip of his nose can balance anything that isn’t nailed to the ground. And he takes it to an even higher level: a top-hat lands inch-perfect on the cigar protruding casually from the corner of his mouth; even the mirror seems to stick to his head; and on his chin two billiard cues lie at right angles, with a ball on top.
And at last an unusual juggler, who tames hats, balls and picture frames, making them balance on his nose and forehead, or whizz through the air - impulsive and yet totally under control at the same time.
Gentleman Juggler Jeton, on the other hand, impressed the audience with his ability to propel objects of such different shapes and weights as a hat, a cane, a handkerchief and a coin through the air with the utmost elegance. He also performed a seemingly impossible feat: balancing a heavy framed mirror on one of its corners with his head, he made it slide along the edge and caught it again on another corner. Just as fantastic were Jeton’s lightning-fast ball and top-hat juggling routines, and his balancing acts with two billiard cues, and with several cups and saucers.
Juggler Jeton made balls, billiard cues and even a mirror float through the air. There seems to be nothing that this man cannot keep in the air with his hands, feet or nose. The highlight of the show is a routine developed by the legendary German juggler Rudy Horn: With the tip of his toe, Jeton tossed cups and saucers, one after the other, up into the air and caught them on his head, creating an ever taller stack. He rounded it off by flipping a lump of sugar and a teaspoon into the top cup using the same technique.

Top-class juggling – that was Gentleman Jeton. Everything he touched was skilfully sent spinning through the air: hats, balls and even mirrors seemed to defy the laws of gravity. He succeeded in elevating well-known routines like the cup-and-saucer trick to cult status. Despite his daredevil moves, the mirror remained in one piece.
