Lads and lassies, wear your white cockades! This beautiful white grosgrain cockade is hand-sewn with a striking silver thistle in the center. Attaches with a sterling silver plated pin on back. Scottish pride has never looked classier! Approximately 3" (7 cm) across rosette . Pin back is 1" (2.5 cm) wide.
One of the most romantic figures in history was Bonnie Prince Charlie. Charles Stuart was the last of his family to attempt to regain the British throne from the German Hanovers. Returning from exile in France, he bravely entered Scotland with just a few followers. The story goes that he put a white rose in his hat when he landed. Thereafter he and his followers were often distinguished by a white cockade in their Scotch bonnets. For more history on white cockades, check my blog entry HERE.
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?
