Red Ceramic Poppy
NZ hand crafted ceramic poppy to hang on your wall or rest on a desk or shelf.
For more than 85 years, Poppy Day has been observed in New Zealand, making it one of the oldest nationwide appeals in this country. It has become a national and international symbol of remembrance for fallen servicemen and women.
Poppy Day is normally held on the Friday before Anzac Day when RSA volunteers stand vigil on street corners and in public places, exchanging the distinctive red poppy buttonhole flowers in return for a donation in support of their organisation’s welfare fund.
The style of the poppies sold today has changed since the first Poppy Day Appeal in 1922, but the meaning has remained the same - remembrance and welfare. These ceramic ones can be enjoyed and valued all year round.
Approximately 6x6cm with a wire hook on the back for easy hanging.
This product is handmade in New Zealand
