Bonwit Teller window display featuring a dress with a Christmas tree from Valerian S. Rybar's "Christmas Trees Through the Ages". The floor is covered with snow, and the Christmas tree stands upon a miniature snowbank. The tree displayed in this window is quite structured and modern, being made up of several triangular pieces that have been arranged in a tree structure. The mannequin is wearing a long patterned dress and has been accessorized with a belt and several layered necklaces. A banner at the bottom of the display reflects the Christmas spirit of the display.
