Ron Roads’ auction has been in operation for 50 years and was originally started by his father, Vic Rhoads. I was contacted by Ron regarding an upcoming sale that they are having which will feature a rather extroardinary bedroom suite attributed to R.J. Horner.
Due to my proximity to their location, I was able to see the suite in person and they permitted me to take photographs, which I will share below. The link to Horner is a metal tag which was located in one of the drawers during it’s lifetime and stays with the set today. There is a chance that the tag could have been bought and added to the set during it’s history, and I leave that open to possibility, but based on what I know from Ron, I don’t think that is the case. I think this is the real deal.
The sale will occur on Sunday April, 5th, so if you’re interested, get your absentee bids in. I know Ron has already received substantial offers for the set pre-sale.
Gallery is below, or you can view the photos in a Flickr slideshow.
