Patty Pan

The Copp family of Stonington, Connecticut owned this patty-pan at their home during the 18th and 19th century. The patty pan was cookware used to make small meat-filled pastries known as patty’s or pasty’s.
The Copp Collection contains a variety of household objects that the Copp family of Connecticut used from around 1700 until the mid-1800s. Part of the Puritan Great Migration from England to Boston, the family eventually made their home in New London County, Connecticut, where their textiles, clothes, utensils, ceramics, books, bibles, and letters provide a vivid picture of daily life. More of the collection from the Division of Home and Community Life can be viewed by searching accession number 28810.
