Description

Bonwit Teller window display featuring a women's coat. Part of the set up includes four panels that have a painted scene of a nude woodland creature with leaves covering her body, stag-like antlers and birds in flight. The mannequin stands in front of these panels wearing a very grand mink coat, gloves, jewelry, open toed heels, a head piece, and holding a purse. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "In the Bonwit Spotlight... Our Great Coat fabulous fashion in Natural Dark Ranch Mink. Fur Salon Fourth Floor."
