Bonwit Teller window display featuring a dress with a Christmas tree from Valerian S. Rybar's "Christmas Trees Through the Ages". The tree is made up of four tiered circles, each lined with bay leaves, hung with crystal pendants, and supporting crystal “candles.” The tree resembles a chandelier due to the pendants. The mannequin is wearing a long coat with gloves, and is holding a gift box adorned with Christmas bobbles.
