This cockade ("cocarde" in French) is comprised of stitched linen and pinned with a glass rooster in the colors of the republic. "Paris" can be seen faintly on the white portion, but it has rubs to the letters.
Of indeterminate age, I am estimating it is circa WWII but I cannot be certain.
The piece measures approximately 2.5", not including the rooster in the measurements.
*****Condition: Please note there are some slubs in the material as well as creases and folds and discoloration, this latter issue seen in particular on the white area. Also, as noted above, "Paris" on the white portion of the rooster has some rubs.
