Description

Bonwit Teller window display featuring women's Italian knitwear, and a Lambretta motor scooter. The mannequin is standing beside the scooter holding a pair of gloves as if they have just been removed and is wearing a long knitted jacket, pearl necklace, dress, hat, and flat shoes. Behind the scooter stands a second mannequin dressed as a motor vehicle technician, wearing a jumpsuit and holding wind goggles in one hand. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Zooming in from Italy.. Bonwit's exciting new Italian knits... Sports Floor the Fifth... Zooming in from Italy... The news making Lambretta... Courtesy of the Innocenti Corp. Lambretta Division."
