Large Poppy Pendant
This eye catching poppy pendant boasts an elegant five leaf red enamal poppy. It is a fantastic accessory that possesses phenomenal sentimental and historic value.
A superb gift for a loved one or yourself, this necklace 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."
