Antique Prints

Since 1763 the name 'Russborough' has been synonymous with collecting and dealing in fine art. In the closing decades of the last century the historic town of Port Hope has become home to Lord Russborough's Annex, which specialises in an individual mix of antique maps, paintings and prints.

While Lord Russborough's Annex features a great many works of museum calibre, we also offer a wonderful selection of prints priced at under $100.

Beneath the full colour armorial bearings of the Philanthropic Society of Master Tailor of Paris are depicted, four of the then latest fashion gentleman's suits 1.

A ladies gray walking dress beneath a very elegant fur trimmed long double-breasted high neck burgundy red coat matching yellow and burgundy floral & feather hat, white kid gloves silver topped umbrella.
These plates were considered to be the height of Parish fashion and most certainly influenced the fashion for the season and probably succeeding ones. The Philanthropic society of Tailors of Paris was founded 1st June 1831 evolved into the Society of Master Tailors 1834.

Fashion plates detailing Gentleman's fashions are surprisingly scarce, especially ones of this quality and have become highly collectable. Framed, they add a sophisticated elegance to any dressing-room and would make a perfect Father’s Day gift.

19th centry American magazines such as Godey's Lady's Book (1830-1898), Peterson's Magazine (1842-1898) and Graham's, satisfied a desire for those who were socially mobile to become aware of refined taste in manners, art and literary elements without too much effort.  It pandered to the insecurities of an emerging class coming together from many nations and merging as one in a new American society.
