The necklaces have been created from the solid brass of original artillery shell fuses found on First World War battlefields. The shells have been melted down and cast, using the traditional ‘lost wax’ method in which each and every poppy requires a wax version, into the hand sculpted poppy designs.
Each necklace features a contrasting sterling silver backing plate on which the brass poppy is mounted upon an 18” diamond cut Belcher style silver chain. Each is engraved on their reverse with ‘1914-1918 Flanders Fields’ and is accompanied by a certificate of provenance and presented in a high quality case.
All income raised from the sale of the necklaces goes directly to The Royal British Legion and the important work they do in providing care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces and their families. The necklace is available exclusively from The Poppy Shop www.poppyshop.org.uk.
