Mount Vernon’s Fine and Decorative Arts Collections comprise hundreds of distinctive objects: items owned and used by George and Martha Washington, the possessions of extended members of the Washington and Custis families, practical tools and goods used on the plantation by enslaved and hired workers, period objects similar to those used at Mount Vernon, and a wide array of commemorative objects that address the Washingtons’ legacy in celebratory, thought-provoking, and humorous ways.

Included are paintings, prints, sculpture, furniture, ceramics, metals, glass, textiles and clothing, jewelry and personal accessories, weapons, and tools, with examples dating from the seventeenth century to 1932, the bicentennial of George Washington’s birth.

Explore and search our Online Collections to learn more about these objects. Many of these objects are used to furnish the Mount Vernon Mansion and others can be seen in our Museum galleries. Plan your visit to Mount Vernon today.
