The Collection of Ronald Tackett

The Collection of Ron Tackett (1945 – 2021) Main Auction Galleries is proud to be selling Ron’s collection. Ron began coming to our gallery in the 1960’s. He would always stop by to inspect our paintings, antiques, and décor items. Ron would spend hours inspecting any item that had a Tennessee or Kentucky origin. He had a true love/passion for sugar chests. One in particular caught his attention, and he spent 24 hours (maybe more) admiring the piece. He was on the ground, flashlight in hand, inspecting this piece over and over again. His love and appreciation for this item was truly admirable. If Ron was looking at a sugar chest, corner cabinet, silver, or a painting, we knew there was something special about that piece. Whenever Ron came in, he was always in a good mood and always offered a good life lesson (big or small). He always had a great story to tell. From an early age Ron began sharpening his entrepreneurial skills. After attending Georgetown College and Morehead State University his love for antiques launched an early career when he opened his own antique shop on Dixie Highway near Walton. Working with his wife, Brenda, his son, Owen, and his daughter, Shawn, has been a pleasure. Needless to say, the apple (or in this case, apples) doesn’t (don't) fall far from the tree! It has been wonderful sharing stories with Ron’s family and seeing such a wonderful collection.
