Wish good luck to the happy couple on their wedding day

This is a REAL steel horseshoe, crafted by a master farrier blacksmith in the heart of England, and beautifully decorated. It makes the ideal wedding day gift. There are many legends surrounding the horseshoe / symbol, but the English legend is the most famous: It says that, in olde England, St Dunstan** (the original patron Saint of England) nailed a horseshoe to a horse whilst working as a blacksmith. But the horse was actually the Devil in disguise and it caused the Devil great pain. Saint Dunstan only agreed to remove the horseshoe after the Devil promised never to enter a house where a horseshoe hung. All our lucky horseshoes are handcrafted in England.


Dimensions: 11.5cms high x 11.5cms wide and weighs just over 8oz (230gms). It is beautifully decorated with mulberry paper sweetheart blossoms and satin ribbon, both in ivory colour, perfect for a wedding. It is supplied with two nails for fixing to a wall, door, etc.

The ideal gift to wish the bride and groom good luck for their future together and to remind them of their wedding day. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can add a personal message on your behalf
