“In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row…”
Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae
In Joint Venture with TMB Art Metal, we introduce you to The Flanders Pen.
The cap band and cap button are crafted from copper retrieved from British artillery shell drive bands discovered in the fields of the Somme region of France, and Ypres in Belgium. The poppy incised cap button gets its colour from red enamel mixed with earth gathered from Essex Farm, Ypres. The same location that Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae of the Canadian Army Medical Corps penned his world-famous poem, ‘In Flanders Fields’, on 3rd May 1915.
This beautifully crafted pen uniquely incorporates two elements of World War One history – metal and earth.
This picture collage shows how the materials are sourced and processed, so that you can appreciate the fine craftsmanship of this historical pen.
