Court train, First Empire

From the Chateau de Malmaison Costume Collection app:

"This court train was found at the residence of the descendants of the family of Empress Josephine’s son, Prince Eugene. It is a different type of train, not silk or tulle but velvet, and has extensive embroidery along the edges. The etiquette established under the Empire encouraged the use of such heavy, precious fabrics as Napoleon wished to revitalise the fabric manufacturing industry in Lyon."
