Javier and José Eguiguren M., founders of Eguiguren Arte de Hispanoamérica in 1987, are two brothers specializing in Antique Hispanic-American Art, Silver and Works of Art from the Americas. We have exhibited at TEFAF Maastricht, TEFAF New York Fall, International Horse Fair, Dubai and International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition, Abu Dhabi.
Along with our activity as antiques dealers, due to our area of expertise, we have also worked as consultants and curators on exhibitions and mega-exhibitions at national and international museums, as well as publishing specialised catalogues and books boasting a high standard of research and an academic framework. Some of these studies have led to reviews of, and updates in, our knowledge of Hispanic-American Silver, both in museums and private collections. Due to this, museums, institutions and collectors often request our advice or an exchange of ideas in our field.

-Equestrian Silver in the River Plate. Art for Riders and Horses
International Horse Fair, Dubai, 2018.
