Wish good luck for a special occasion

This is a REAL steel horseshoe, crafted by a master farrier blacksmith in the heart of England, and beautifully decorated. It makes the ideal gift for a special occasion like a Wedding, or for someone moving into a new home. There are many legends surrounding the horseshoe / symbol and why it is thought lucky, 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 ivory coloured mulberry paper sweetheart blossoms and natural raffia for a rustic look, perfect for a wedding or new home. 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, or to bring good fortune into the new home. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
