Sophisticated in a softly flowing pale purple gown, You’re a Wonderful Friend is proudly holding a bouquet of deep purple chrysanthemums with its warm message of fidelity, optimism and joy. Nestled amongst the hand tied chrysanthemums are 15 handmade flowers, each one exquisitely painted with purple petals and yellow centers. More fine details decorating this exceptional figurine include sparkling platinum highlights tracing the waist and neckline of the dress and an elegant pearl colored necklace peeping through her blond hair.
Chrysanthemum comes from the Greek word “Chrys” meaning golden (the color of the original flower), and “anthemon”, meaning flower. This name was given to it by Carolus Linnaeus, a Swedish naturalist who is also famed as the father of modern taxonomy. Today, the Chrysanthemum flowers bloom in various forms, and can be daisy-like or take a pompom or button shape and can be in a wide range of colors including yellow, white, purple, and red. The general sentiment conveyed by chrysanthemums is one of loyalty and friendship.
