Large poppy brooch
This eye catching poppy brooch adds a touch of elegance to any outfit. Featuring a striking red poppy, the brooch is a beautiful way to show your support for the Armed Forces and military Veterans.
A superb gift for a loved one or yourself, this brooch is packaged in a white presentation box, complete with an extract from the poem In Flanders Fields by John McCrae. The Poppy Jewellery Collection features four and five petal flowers rather than the traditional two petal Royal British Legion poppy.
The poppy is a durable and persevering flower which grew in its thousands among desolate and barren battlegrounds. Its natural associations with endurance, determination and rebirth saw it adopted as a symbol of remembrance for those who lost their lives in the First World War. Lt John McCrae's 1915 poem, In Flanders Fields, helped secure the poppy's image as a hallmark of sacrifice and remembrance;
"In Flanders fields the poppies blow between the crosses, row on row."
10% of proceeds from the sales of the collection are donated to Combat Stress and SSAFA, mental health support charities for active soldiers and veterans.
Materials: Enamelled metal
Dimensions: 33 x 33 mm
