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. This particular tree is in medieval style, with a silver foil base and the tree tiers trimmed with silk coats of arms and topped by a knight's helmet piece with yellow and red plumes. The mannequin is wearing a mink and red velvet negligee and is holding a delicately wrapped gift in one hand.
