Show your southern pride the 1860s way - a Secession Cockade! Choose a gorgeous red satin with a gold Texas star or blue satin with a military gold star in the center. Hand-sewn to authentic buckram backing.
Approximately 3" (7 cm) across rosette. Optional pin on back is silver-plated and 1" (2.5 cm) wide.
In order to show support for secession, many people in the 1860s wore secession cockades. The Dallas Herald on December 5, 1860 declared: “Many of our citizens appear on the streets of Dallas wearing the cockade of our national colors, blue ribbon with a golden star. Some wear cockades of red.”
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?
