In Dixieland I'll take my stand!
Men, woman and children wore these Southern patriotic rosettes during the Civil War to show support for secession. This beautiful cockades is based on 1860s original cockades. The perfect holiday gift for him or her!
Beautiful satin ribbon, reproduction Florida seal button, hand-sewn onto buckram. Silver-plated pin back. Approximately 2.5" across rosette.
Secession Cockades were worn in the 1860s by anyone who sympathized with the southern cause. Since they were initiated in South Carolina, they were often blue like the South Carolina flag.
People in the past wore a cockade to tell a story about themselves. I love researching what those stories were and why people wanted to tell them. People today have stories to tell too, so that's what motivates me to keep making cockades! What's your story and how can I help you tell it better?
