Description

Bonwit Teller window display featuring a dress for a collection entitled "Sun Flowers for South" by B.H. Wragge. Foliage frames the window giving the impression of an outdoor veranda scene. The mannequin is sitting on a patterned wicker chair. A table of the same material with a tiered basket full of fruit stands beside the chair. The mannequin is wearing a patterned dress, gloves, and heeled shoes while holding a fan in one hand. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwit's own B.H. Wragge Sun Flowers for South in the prettiest pastel colors... a new mood in our Cruise Collection... Sports Fifth Floor."
