Description

Presumably created for a Saks Fifth Avenue advertisement, this illustration depicts what appears to be a department store setting with a woman being dress in a sleeveless cocktail dress with a full skirt by two other women, who are possibly store employees. The woman on the left side of the illustration appears to be trying on a double-breasted swagger coat and lampshade hat.
