28834 - Legend has it the 10th century Archbishop of Canterbury, Dunstan, who was a former blacksmith managed to outwit the devil. The devil was thought to have asked Dunstan to shoe his hoof. Dunstan realised his customer was the devil and nailed the shoe on as painfully as he could. The devil begged for mercy. Dunstan agreed to remove the shoe on the condition that the devil agreed never to enter a place where a horseshoe was hung over the door. It is thought to be lucky if a toddler hands the bride a horseshoe as she exits the ceremony. These days horseshoes make a unique alternative to ring bearer pillows.
This genuine pewter horseshoe hangs from a pretty white satin handle and is engraved with the words "Lucky in Love". 5.5" x 6". $43.98
