This handmade pleated grosgrain ribbon cockade come in two sizes.
Medium - Approx. 2 1/2" diameter made with 7/8" grosgrain ribbon with a 7/8" metal skull and crossbones button. This size is on the hat in the last picture. The hat is for display only and not part of this listing.
Large - Approx. 3 1/2" diameter made with 1 1/2" grosgrain ribbon with a 7/8" (22mm) metal skull and crossbones button.
The button is held on with a metal button clip (cotter pin). On the felt backing, there is also a bar pin for attaching the cockade to clothing or a cloth hat. The pin is too fragile for a heavy felt hat. Use needle and thread to add stitches to a felt hat and then slip the pin through those stitches.

HISTORY: Memento Mori Jewelry, including rosaries, with its unflinching use of symbols of death and its purposeful message, "Remember you must die" was widely worn in Western Europe during the 16th century. A constant reminder that life is temporary and heaven should be the ultimate goal, its intention was to encourage virtuous living. Later skulls and black ribbons were used as a sign of mourning the loss of a loved one.
