1861 Union Rosette

Based on this original from the Minnesota Historical Society:

1861 Union Rosette in the Minnesota Historical Society Civil War Collection
It's box-pleated silk ribbon (possibly with too much fabric stiffener...), with a uniform button at the center; the backing is buckram.  Based on the size of silk ribbon available, mine is about 1.5 times the size of the original (3" across instead of 6 cm).

Reproduction 1861 union cockade: red, white, and blue silk ribbon with uniform button.
