Between July and November 2014, the Tower of London was a temporary home to some 888,246 ceramic poppies to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1. Each poppy represented the life of a British or Colonial serviceman killed during the war.
Once the display had expired, each individual poppy was sold to raise money for the Royal British Legion, giving not only collectors an item truly worth holding on to, but also familes who have lost loved ones in any armed conflict since WW1, including more recent conflicts such as wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, something to remember their loved ones by for the rest of their lives.
The poppies are completely sold out, and online marketplaces such as eBay and Gumtree have banned their re-sale. Therefore it is in our opinion essential that you afford your poppy the protection it deserves.
If you wish to have your poppy on display in your home, the safest way is without a doubt to be on the wall, away from curious children and exciteable dogs. We combine the use of the rubber bungs supplied with the poppy, along with our own expertise to ensure that the poppy is secured in place, causing no damage whatsoever.
A sample of our poppy framing technique is pictured below. The sample is by no means as far as we can go - if you wish to include a photograph of a loved one, or perhaps a set of medals, please feel free to give us a call on 01246 731858 to discuss your requirements.
The service provided to achieve the display as pictured is £75, and is available with a white or black frame. Please use the 'add to cart' options below.
If you wish to discuss other options regarding the framing of your poppy (ie, the inclusion of medals, photos etc), please call us on 01246 731858.
The service offered is for the framing of a poppy that already belongs to you. The poppies pictured are for illustration purposes only and are not included in any sale.
