| ||The Copp Collection, National Museum, about 1900
The collection of clothing, textiles, and household items used by the Copp family of Stonington, Connecticut, from about 1650 to 1850 is one of the museum's largest family-based collections. Displayed at the 1893 World's Columbian Exhibition in Chicago, the collection was later donated by John Brenton Copp to the National Museum, where it was exhibited to represent life in colonial times.
