Sign number 6b from the "Vienna - the city introduces itself" series of signs, an initiative established in 1956 as part of the Vienna Festival, which shows significant places in the city. The serial number is displayed at the bottom of the sign.
Above the sign are 4 flags of Austria, which is a hallmark of the project, and the possibility of recognizing it from a distance (Below the sign is the name of the auction house) Click for a larger image

Note that this sign is slightly different from other signs from the same series - the text appears in it in two languages (German and English), the phrase "Vienna - A city introduces itself" does not appear at the bottom, but the initiating factor - the Vienna Tourist Board.
