Fine Silver from the Estate of Patricia Smyth

Hindman is honored to host an unreserved single-owner sale of Fine Silver from the Estate of Patricia Ann Black Smith sold to benefit Berea College. The sale encompasses 329 lots of rare, historically pertinent and interesting objects spanning over 300 years of silversmithing from across the globe. Anchored by an impressive selection of Georg Jensen, English and Modern American makers, the collection's international aesthetic is further propelled by lots from China, Southeast Asia, Mexico and Europe. The unreserved sale presents buyers with ample opportunities to bid on eclectic and desirable works of silver. Patricia Ann Black Smyth (1925-2018) was born in Kansas City, Missouri, the daughter of Ernest Bateman Black and Faye Bunyan Black. She attended Miss Crosby's School in Illinois and graduated from Wellesley College in Massachusetts, where she was a lifetime member of the Wellesley Friends of the Library Organization. Mrs. Smyth also served as a member of the Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri, and was a long-time docent at the Art Institute of Chicago. Hindman is thrilled to present Mrs. Smyth’s refined and diverse collection, which will be sold without reserve to benefit Berea College in Berea, Kentucky. Berea College was founded in 1855 with the express mission of educating both women and men of all racial backgrounds. It is the South’s first racially integrated and co-educational college and is guided by the motto from Acts 17:26: "God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth." Only students with high academic promise and limited financial means are accepted, and every student receives a Tuition Promise Scholarship�-no student pays tuition. As a Work College, every student works at least 10 hours per week to help pay for housing, meals and personal expenses. Berea students have the lowest amount of student debt in the country, and half graduate debt free.
