Bonwit Teller window display featuring a women's negligee. The mannequin faces the background that is made to look like a forest. The background is made up of tree branches and a fake monkey hangs from one of the branches. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "The modern cave-dwellers, the beautiful Bonwit negligee."
