The Union forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Men, women and children wore these patriotic rosettes during the Civil War to show support for the Union. This gorgeous cockade is based on original 1860s cockades.
Silk ribbon, reproduction metal spangles (sequins) are hand-sewn onto period-correct buckram. Approximately 3" (7 cm) across rosette. Optional pin back is 1" (2.5 cm) long.

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?
