Welcome to Ernest Johnson Antiques


Thank you for visiting Ernest Johnson Antiques.

Since 1989 Ernest Johnson Antiques has been offering discriminating clients a select inventory of 18th – 20th century English, European and Asian Fine & Decorative Art and has established the reputation of maintaining what is arguably the finest selection of antique period furniture, fine & decorative art & accessories in the National Capital region.

Ernest Johnson Antiques is a vetted member of the Canadian Antique Dealers Association (CADA) which is a Canadian Government chartered organization established in 1967 that currently represents approximately 30 dealers nationwide. Ernest Johnson has authored a monthly antiques column for Ottawa Life Magazine, and has written feature articles for The Upper Canadian - Canada's foremost antiques magazine.

Since moving from our original premises adjacent the grounds of Rideau Hall, we have transitioned to what is now primarily an online showroom which is updated twice monthly. Once a new physical showroom is established that location will be posted here and again on the Home Page. In the interim first hand viewings of our inventory can easily be arranged either at our warehouse or ’in-situ’ at one’s residence. (Please refer to the Buying & Selling Page for further information).
