May 24 will be Queen Victoria's 200th birthday! This gorgeous cockade celebrates this special event. A crown surmounts a beautiful picture of Victoria painted by court painter Franz Xaver Winterhalter in 1856. Victoria liked this painting and said it was "really a fine picture of me, & very like." The cockade is approximately 2" (5 cm) wide and comes with a silver-plated pinback.
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?
