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.

Here is a part of the fleet off Hango, Finland, at the mouth of the Gulf of Finland. After the nearby fortress of Bomarsund was captured, the Russians blew up the fort at Hango to forestall attack on the city of Hango.
