Description

Architectural view of an ornate iron gate at St. Stephen's Cathedral. The phrase at the top of the gate reads: Kellerei zu St. Stefan (wine cellar of St. Stephen's). Two figures stand above an inscription. The figure on the left holds a stringed instrument, possibly a mandolin, and the figure on the right holds an object in his extended hand.
