Bonwit Teller window display promoting their lingerie and nightwear collection. The background is made up of intertwining tree branches, and an owl statue is perched in the branches. The mannequin stands in the forest-like setting wearing a negligee. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Undreamed of luxury from here and abroad, gowns and their roles only at Bonwit's , Lingerie Collections Third Floor."
