About the collection

The collection includes objects purchased by both Henry Clay Frick and his daughter Helen Clay Frick, as well as museum purchases and gifts. The collection provides an introduction to the early collecting and taste of Henry Clay Frick, and the development of the collecting interests of Helen Frick.

The collection associated with the Fricks' Gilded Age life in Pittsburgh encompasses both the typical, everyday object and the highly individual object—creating an unusual portrait of a specific family and life during the Gilded Age. The costume collection numbers over 2,000 objects and includes gowns, children’s clothing, and personal accessories.
