Description

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 in the display is very unique, made up of several fake branches with tassel-trimmed cloth wrapped around it in tiers. At the top of the tree is the bust of a doll dressed like royalty. The mannequin is wearing a long dress and is accessorized beautifully with an elegant necklace and earring set.
