Description

Bonwit Teller Mother's Day themed window display featuring a statue of a mother that is made of what looks to be clay. The statue wears a coat, scarf and holds a rose in its hand. The window is set up with tiered platforms covered in giftwrapping paper. Arranged on the platform are flower vases, tea sets, decorative figurines, and other Mother's Day gift ideas. A banner at the bottom of the display reads: "How do you figure Mother? Is she one of the girls? Garden Club variety? Her special Bonwit gift will figure high on Mother's Day."
