Learn more about the Watteau train below.
Watteau trains differ from all of the other types of trains because they are attached to the gown at the shoulders instead of the waistline. A Watteau train flows down the back of the gown and gently sweeps the floor behind. This type of train is still occasionally seen on evening gowns, and was never associated exclusively with bridal attire. These trains are named after 18th century French court painter Jean-Antoine Watteau because they are featured in so many of his paintings, which depict the most fashionable women of their day.Condition: Excellent vintage condition.
