China Pink Watercolor

This framed watercolor of a China pink flower was in the Copp family home in Stonington, Connecticut during the late 18TH century. The image comes from a print by British engraver John Hinton of Newgate Street, London.
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.
