Wear your heraldic colors with pride! This cockade is made with a reversible ribbon. With a black field and gold ermine spot on one side (pean) and a gold field with a black ermine spot on the other side (erminois). The trim picture is the best representation of the gold color. Hat in pictures is not included in this listing!
NEW! We now have the traditional black and white ermine! The white field with black spots is regular ermine. The reverse with black field and white spots is called ermines.
Yes, cockades are period! Wear it on your late period doublet, hat or as an arm band. There is a great 16th c. painting of Don Juan from Austria wearing a red cockade as a brassard (armband) as he poses in his armor.
Our cockades are made with 1" wide ribbon and measure approx. 4" across. They have a black leather shank button in the center. There is a bar pin on the back for attaching it to clothing, an arm band or cloth hat. CAUTION: The pin will not go through a felt hat without bending and possibly breaking. Please stitch your hat side up with thread or a thin ribbon and then attach the pin to the stitching.
