PROPERTY FROM THE GARNETT A. AND HARRY K. SMITH ESTATE
When Harry K. Smith married Garnett Anderson in 1937, he was a struggling welding equipment salesman. Within ten years, Harry took over a fledging family business, Big Three Industries, Inc. and transformed the enterprise into a Fortune 500 company. Prosperous and successful, he retired as Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer in 1968.
Harry delighted in surprising Garnett with an array of unique and custom-made jewelry. Over the span of their 52-year marriage, she accumulated many beautiful and treasured gifts. After the death of her parents, Stacey Dudevszky, their daughter, decided to keep a few sentimental pieces of her mothers, but offer the majority of this elegant collection to the public.
