Bourgeault-Horan Antiquarians & Associates was founded in 2019 by Ron Bourgeault and James Horan. A boutique company, built on over 50 years in the antiques industry, Bourgeault-Horan conducts auctions, brokers private sales, and provides advice and consulting to clients including collectors and institutions.
Ron Bourgeault has been involved with antiques since he was a youngster when he became fascinated with coins, glass and Currier & Ives prints. After-school hours were spent helping a local auctioneer sell end-of-the-day box lots and by age fourteen Ron was exhibiting at the prestigious New Hampshire Antique Dealers Association Show. At twenty-three he was the youngest dealer to exhibit at the preeminent East Side Winter Antiques Show at the Armory in New York and for thirty-seven years, Ron continued to do these and other major shows across the country. Ron’s first major auction was conducted to benefit a New England museum. Its success led him to continue in the auction arena and in 1987, Ron began Northeast Auctions as a full-time business.
With over fifty years in the business, Ron has a wide network of contacts among collectors, dealers and museum staff. He has been a guest lecturer and appraiser at numerous conferences and events and is a member of the Appraisers Association of America and the National Auctioneers Association. Ron also appears regularly on public television’s Antiques Roadshow and was named by Art & Auction Magazine as one of the art world’s “Power Fifty: Who Mattered Most in 2002.”
