Bonwit Teller window featuring a women's ensemble by fashion house Monte-Sano & Pruzan. The mannequin stands next to a tall tree trunk with a mushroom growing on its base. The surface of the ground is textured to look like a forest floor. The mannequin is holding a purse and is wearing a long coat, earrings, fabric gloves, heeled shoes and a hat. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwit's important news... coats with the greatest of ease - by Monte Sano and Pruzan... Fourth Floor Coat Salon."
1949 – 1973
