Equestrian home accents
Created from a pair of used horseshoes that have been heated and cleaned by hand to retain marks of wear and character.
We are able to offer them to you in either a Deep Rust finish or in a Gunmetal Silver tone.
In the images a rust finish was used in a client’s equestrian themed room which toned with the other rich browns. Our gunmetal tone will look the same as our Horseshoe Hearts. Each pair will be treated and sealed, to stop rust developing on the Gunmetal Silver tone and to prevent rust from transferring on the Deep Rust tone.
The shoes are mounted on round steel for the ‘arms’ that have two screw holes for wall mounting. (Screws not supplied) The shoe size will be approximately 15cm by 15cm but this may vary slightly according to the nature of the horseshoes used.
Why used horseshoes?
These curtain holdbacks have been made from used, “lucky horseshoes”. Only used shoes are said to be lucky as the ‘luck is struck into the shoe with every footfall of the horse’. These are made from our own collection of used shoes gathered from many years of farriery work. It is a wonderful way to incorporate the story of these used pieces into the overall finish of a country or equestrian enthusiasts home.
