Description

Henri Bendel window display featuring a checkerboard backdrop, vase with long feathers or fern stems, and white columns displaying pumps and handbags, which are also displayed on the ground. The central piece of the display is a mannequin wearing a loose evening coat of unknown material by Traina-Norell. The coat features a tall fur collar, frog closures, and wide fur sleeve cuffs. The coat is possibly made of sapphire blue wool and skunk fur, as indicated in an advertisement for what appears to be the same coat. This photograph was part of a larger scrapbook that can now be found in Box OSx-1, Folder 3.
