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.

The Thomas W. Lawson is believed to be the largest schooner ever built and the greatest capacity of any cargo-carrying sailing vessel. She was 404 ft. over all (385 ft. at her water line) 50 ft beam and 33 ft. deep; 5000 gross tons. She had seven 193 ft high masts capable of carrying 25 sails - over 40,000 sq. ft. rigged fore and aft with seven lower sails and three jibs, top sails, stay-sails and two outer jibs. Built in Quincy, Mass. in the last decade of the 19th cent. she had three complete tiers of beams, two steel decks, besides a poop and top-gallant forecastle; she was fitted with two boilers and five steam winches, with both steam and hand steerers. She had a total crew of just nineteen. In 1907 she was lost in heavy weather off Britain's Scilly Isles with only one crew member surviving.
