Bonwit Teller window display featuring a women's ensemble by Tina Leser. In the background of the display is a large, somewhat abstract illustration of a ship in water. The illustration is composed of many different types of lines. The mannequin is wearing a "Southern" style dress with heeled shoes. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwit's for significant southern fashion... this by Tina Leser... Sports Floor the Fifth."
