Long Description:

Depicted Renaissance stone portal and wooden door are kez architectonic element of Saxonian Court (Saský dvur) located in Mostecká Street (Mostecká ulice) in Lesser Town of Prague district.

The house, known also under name "Dum U Šteinicu", was originally a part of the so-called Saxonian Court, a group of buildings given to the Dukes of Saxony by Charles IV as hereditary property; it was owned by them until 1409. From the Gothic building only cellars and parts of walls were preserved, its current appearance is the result of a Renaissance reconstruction (probably by J.C. de Bossi after 1592) and Classicist adaptations (1826-1828). The monumental portal decorated by CoA of Lesser Town of Prague is very precious piece of Renaissance architecture. In the 19th century a well known pub of V. Steinitz was found there, in 1898-1932 there was a bookstore and a stationary shop of Josef Šváb Malostranský, a cabaretier and the first Czech film actor.
