I would agree with firefighter that it appears to be a rosette from the Verdun medal, dating it to the immediate post-WW1 years.

I think it's just a generic "red, white, & blue" patriotic lapel rosette.

Obviously it could be, but it looks like there is way more red and then only a couple of white & blue stripes.

Why would it be dated 1888, if the battle of Verdun was from 21st of February to 15th of December 1916.

The patent is from 1888, not the item. These were made, I suspect, either from post-WWI through post WWII or just post-WWII. The reason I say that is because there are many examples of later US ribbons (through WWII) by this company/patent. Search "rosette" on eBay and you'll see many listed. I agree that this is the Verdun medal ribbon.

Hello,

I know this is a little late to reply to this topic, but I have found a site, if you haven't already, all on these rosettes. Which from what I have found, are still being made today. Yours however is probably dated as its patent date. That's what I am guessing, and the one fellow is probably correct, it being a Verdun medal rosette. The site is: www.frontiernet.net/~jackiebush/Rosette.html

Thanks,

KT

The Rosette is the Military Order of the Loyal Legion,

see web site-http://www.frontiern...A_Rosettes.html

The rosettes are arranged by color, so go down to the Blue, White, Red part to see them.

It is my web site.
