Bonwit Teller window display featuring two women's ensembles by B.H. Wragge. The ensemble on the left includes a ribbed sweater, short coat, and a fitted skirt cut just below-the-knee. The ensemble on the right includes a polka-dotted sheath dress worn with what appears to be a fuzzy brimmed hat. Both ensembles also include handbags and plain pumps. The clocks in the background of the display coincide with the message that is shown on the sign at the bottom of the window: "Wragge Every Time!"
