Husband Hunting

A pair of votive bottles was created for the glass collector Lucy Able Smith as a wedding anniversary present. It celebrates the marriage of Lucy and her husband David and refers to a quaint practice of sewing and stitchery exercises from Lucy’s school days that was called ‘Husband hunting’. Lucy always hated sewing and vowed on her wedding day that she would never thread a needle and that David would have to sew all his own buttons. She has held true to this promise to this day.
