Show your southern pride the 1860s way - a Secession Cockade! Hand-sewn blue grosgrain ribbon with a South Carolina military button in the center. Braided palmetto frond is real!
Approximately 2.5" (6 cm) across rosette. Pin on back is silver-plated and 1" (2.5 cm) wide. Palmetto braid is real and each cockade varies slightly.
In order to show support for secession, many people in the 1860s wore secession cockades. Civilian ladies and gentlemen, military men, children, and even horses and wagons were adorned with these patriotic symbols.
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?
