Description
Bonwit Teller window display featuring a women's ensemble that was in Vogue at the time of the window display. The mannequin is wearing a dress with a fur wrap around her shoulders, gloves and heeled shoes. The window is set up to look like a domestic scene using two doors with glass inserts. There is a table in the middle of the set up with items like a clock, candlestick holder, and jewelry box. A copy of Vogue lies on the ground of the display. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwit's touch of gold... currently featured in Vogue, a new shade of meaning for Fox "Golden Glory"... by Fromm of Wisconsin - exclusive with us in the whole U.S.A... Fur Salon, Fourth Floor... Gown Designers Sixth Floor... Bonwit's touch of gold... in our beautiful antique collection... Gift Shop, Second Floor"
