Pot stand

During the early part of the Victorian period, food was cooked on a fire in an open hearth. The open fire was central to cooking throughout the nineteenth century, and it prevailed in many rural homes well into the twentieth century.   This cooking pot stand or trivet, comprising a horse's head and horseshoe motif with the word 'LUCK' incorporated, would have been used while cooking on an open fire.
