Bonwit Teller window display featuring Bonwit's household gift items. An elegant table is set up with candlebras and ornate plates and glasses. The background is made up of intertwining tree branches and fairy lights, giving the display the feeling of an enchanted forest. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Connoisseur gifts for Christmass from Bonwit's GIFT SHOP collections, Second Floor."
