Bonwit Teller window display featuring a women's dress by Pauline Trigere with a long mink coat. The display is themed to promote a symphony concert, thus surrealist music themed illustrated panels decorate the background. The mannequin is wearing a belted dress with the mink coat, heeled shoes, many bracelets, and is carrying gloves and a purse in one hand. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwits' Concert goer listens well, looks beautiful... our designer dress by Pauline Trigere, Designers Salon, Sixth Floor... Natural Pastel Mink Coat, Fur Salon, Fourth Floor... The Bonwit Concert-goer is invited to attend an Orchestra Rehearsal of the Philharmonic Society of New York by contributing to the Friends of Philharmonic, New York."
