Henri Bendel window display featuring a checkerboard backdrop, vase with long feathers or fern stems, and white columns displaying pumps and handbags. The central piece of the display is a mannequin wearing a loose evening coat of unknown material by Traina-Norell. The coat features frog closures and wide sleeve cuffs, and is worn with some type of fur wrap around the neck. The coat is likely made of wool, as indicated in multiple advertisements for what appear to be similar coats. This photograph was part of a larger scrapbook that can now be found in Box OSx-1, Folder 3.
