Horse shoe


Delivered by: In the permanent collection of the Gowanus Wunderkammer

Material: Iron


Year: 20th Century

Location discovered: Gowanus Souvenir Shop during renovations

History: Not much is know about this horse shoe. We found it during renovations of the storefront that now houses the Gowanus Souvenir Shop on 567 Union. The space had previously been a wholesaler for bodegas. The horse shoe is unusual in that it is far smaller than normal horse shoes and that it is closed in back. We are just hoping it captured all the good luck before it closed...
