Bonwit Teller Mother's Day themed window display featuring various Mother's day gift items. The set up includes three tiered platforms that are wrapped in giftwrapping paper. A statue of a mother in apron with pie and spoon stands on the topmost tier. The other tiers hold different Bonwit's items such as hand bags, umbrella, jewelry, and other Mother's Day gift ideas. A banner at the bottom of the display reads: "How do you figure Mother? Does she bake a daring pie? Her special Bonwit gift will figure high on Mother's Day."
