I saw then what I had long since forgotten - a "cockade." The Kentucky girls made cockades for us, and almost every soldier had one pinned on his hat. - Co. Aytch, by Sam Watkins
This beautiful blue cockade features a repro Kentucky Civil War military button and a silver-plated pin back. It's suitable for either a lady or a gentleman to wear and fits easily on a hat, bonnet or shoulder. It is approximately 2.5" (6 cm) across.
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?
