Bonwit Teller window featuring a women's coat by Christian Dior. The mannequin wears a long coat, necklace, leather gloves, heeled shoes and a fabric hat. The mannequin stands next to the cut trunk of a tree. The floor is textured to look like dirt. A banner at the bottom details the designer of the clothing as well as where to find the items - on the Fourth Floor in the Coat Salon.
1949 – 1973
