About this object

This delicate fabric pin was too fragile to be put on display but each petal is shaped like a heart and bares the closest resemblance to the poppies that are given out each year by the Royal British Legion to commemorate those who have been lost and also support thousands of Veterans today.

It is believed to have been sold to raise funds for Queen Alexandra's Rose Charity.
