50s Beige Bonwit Teller with lace trim with satin ribbon. Very cool.
Bonwit Teller & Co. was a luxury department store in New York City founded by Paul Bonwit in 1895 at Sixth Avenue and 18th Street, and later a chain of department stores. Bonwit specialized in high-end women’s apparel at a time when many of its competitors were diversifying their product lines, and Bonwit Teller became noted within the trade for the quality of its merchandise as well as the above-average salaries paid to both buyers and executives. In 1907 and the store made another move, this time to the corner of Fifth Avenue and 38th Street.
