Bonwit Teller Mother's Day themed window featuring a statue of a mother dressed in a space suit and surrounded by handbags, jewelry, perfume, and other Mother's Day gift ideas. All the windows in this series feature different statues of mother characters, with this one being called the "Space Cadet".  A banner at the bottom of the display reads "How do you figure Mother? Is she a space cadet? Her special Bonwit gift will figure high on Mother's Day."
