Bonwit Teller window display featuring women's ensembles 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 window display includes two wicker chairs. One of the mannequins sits on this chair wearing a patterned dress with jewelry and heeled shoes. The other mannequin wears a short sleeved button down shirt of the same pattern, high waist shorts, flat shoes, a hat and jewelry. 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."
