Since multiflora descendants range from micro-miniature through shrub to massive rambler in size, some hint of the size or habit of the plant might be useful.

One of the references (Rosenlexikon) says it's a climber. I think the French reference, Catalogue des Rosiers de Ketten Frères, Luxembourg 1893/1894, says it's a very vigorous shrub.

Here is Vintage Gardens' description. They have it listed as a rambler (growth habit 1). More shrub-like climber than tree-gobbler?

Thanks.

The drawing suggests a height of roughly 6' (200cm) and about 5' (150cm) wide, consistent with one of the photos I discovered here after writing the comment.

I was smitten by Ute's photo of this rose. Delighted (but not very surprised) to see VG carries it.

Ernst Dörell and Ernst G. Dorell are the same rose. The correct name is Ernst G. Dörell.
A list of Geschwind's roses is in "Rosen-Almanach 1979-1980", ed. by Servais Lejeune, Lübeck 1980
