Bonwit Teller window display featuring their cultured pearl jewelry collection. The items are being advertised for Christmas gifts, thus the background features styrofoam pieces stacked to look like an arctic landscape. The pearl jewelry is placed around the display in the main spotlight. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "The Fine Things... Bonwit's Cultured Pearl Christmas Gifts First Floor"
