All Decorative Art


The U.S. Capitol has many exceptional furnishings and unique objects that reflect its status as the seat of our national democracy. Yet its long history as a working office building and popular public attraction has also necessitated the acquisition of a wide range of everyday items. With over 1,000 pieces, the Senate's Decorative Art Collection showcases some of the nation's most important heirlooms, as well as the many everyday objects that reflect the needs of the institution and its members over the past 200 years.

This list of artifacts from the Senate Collection is organized by date, with the oldest object listed first. Undated artifacts appear at the end.
