About Us

Upon entering Lord Russborough’s Annex, one is struck by the Dickensian charm of an ‘old world’ eclectic Fine Art gallery, of a type uncommon in Canada. This is not entirely surprising since the name  Russborough  has been synonymous with collecting and dealing in fine art since 1763.
In the closing decades of the last century, the historic town of Port Hope has become home to Lord Russborough's Annex.  On display, and for purchase, are items that really are  different - an individual mix of rare antique maps, illuminated manuscripts, fine paintings and fascinating prints.

For no matter if your enjoyment be history, architecture, rare botanical, birds, naval engravings, or fascinating David Roberts views; you will fine something of interest atLord Russborough’s Annex. There is always a warm invitation to visit the gallery when next in Port Hope.

We welcome enquiries from potential and established collectors, curators and those looking for a single decorative piece, gift or presentation item.

Whilst Lord Russborough's  Annex  features a great many works of museum standard, appraisals and a full conservation and framing service; also offered is a wonderful selection of prints priced at under $100. In compliance with EU regulations, we offer equal pricing for both Ladies and Gentlemen - as has been our policy since 1918.

Mrs. B. Girvan of Oakville wrote “... On my last visit, I was entertained to an eyewitness account of the Charge of the Light Brigade, the assassination of Lincoln, a manuscript of National historic importance to Canada, a delightful original Kate Greenaway illustration of childhood and an unbelievably fine, world class Marine painting - there is bound to be something with which the eccentricities of the proprietor can pique your interest.”

Lord Russborough’s Annex has been featured on the popular syndicated television programme
The Antique Hunter’

On this site you will find a selection of our works - we have many more paintings, prints and maps at the gallery, so if you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact us and we may be able to help.

Lord Russborough’s Annex is uniquely qualified to assist clients in collecting and valuing antique paintings, prints or maps. Our customers buy and sell, confident in the knowledge that they are receiving the best possible advice and expertise:


*       We carefully select our paintings for their quality, condition, subject and price, and we offer them at competitive prices.
*       Each 19th century painting, or item of vertu, sold is accompanied by a description detailing its authenticity.
*       We have developed long-term relationships with our clients and we always try to assist with any specific requirements. If we do not have the painting or image you are looking for at the moment, we will try to source it on the market for you and offer it to you once it becomes available
*       In addition to our Port Hope gallery, we have an online gallery, which shows a selection of our works. If you are interested in any of the items on our site, please don't hesitate to contact us either by telephone or email.
*       We have digital images of all our paintings, prints and maps and we will be pleased to send prospective clients colour images of any works of interest.
*       We can arrange to pack and ship items to  clients both in Canada and abroad, either via UPS. or our specialist art shippers.
*       Traditional methods of payment are accepted, as well as credit card and bank transfers.


*       Our clients and contacts from around the world often offer us paintings, prints or maps. We can sell them on commission, at an agreed net price to either the consignor or gallery.
*       We can also arrange private sales and purchases between individuals as a faster, discreet and more personal service than that received when dealing through the auction rooms. With ever increasing commission rates being charged to both the buyer and seller at auction, this option is proving an attractive alternative for our clients.


*      Through our Toronto affiliate, we offer a fully stocked on-site framing workshop for virtually any custom, bespoke or specific framing requirement, from miniatures to oversize works, in most media.  Adjustments can be made to frames to match or conform to individual specifications. Our frame selection range from the hand carved highly elaborate, to the simply elegant. Using one or more of our many own exclusive or imported mouldings, (which can be decorated with clay corners if desired), then continuing centuries of tradition, we apply the hand finish to create gilt or toned patina. We present your item to you uniquely and exclusively framed to meet your particular requirements.

*      We offer quality mounting and decorative matting by experienced and master craftsmen. Antique and treasured items are matted to museum standards. We can also match colour tones with wall or upholstery covers. We form dappled backgrounds, French lines with wash, and plain or dappled panels in combination with sub-mattes or fillets to enhance or compliment the appearance of your item.
