Panská No. 21

Panská no. 21 Location:
Panská No. 21

Description of the Building:
A two-storey row house on a narrow land parcel with an attic second floor, a partly aisle and partly saddle roof above the court aisle.The front is divided by two axes, on the ground floor on the right there is a broken portal. The layout of the ground floor forms a lateral two-aisle. The entrance hall covers all the front part of the house.

Architectural and Historical Development:
The land parcel was built up as early as the 14th century, it was enlarged at the front in the Middle Ages ("soutka", which is a lane between houses, was probably walled up), and a new pointed portal was made. The attic floor with windows with window jambs probably originate from that time. In the Rennaissance period the entrance hall was vaulted. The layout of the first and second floors is a result of early-Baroque reconstruction.

Development of facade:
Although the building had already reached the 2nd floor level in the Middle Ages, there were not any findings concerning plaster adaptations from that period or the Renaissance period. The present facade is one of a few Baroque period facades in a town of Česky Krumlov, which were not adapted in further periods. Little by little three coloured schemes were found: white-and-grey-coloured, white-and-ochre-coloured, white-and-red-coloured. The only defect of a careful restoration of the present facade done by the lime technology has been a partial dissolution of the corner rustic-work caused during the first postwar restoration. Due to it the tectonic structure of the front has been damaged.

History of the House Residents :
In 1459 a rector Matouš lived in the house, followed by a rector Martin in the years 1463 - 1466. In 1484 there was a certain Tonson and in the years 1500 -1504 a cloth cutter Jan. From 1510 the house belonged to Jan Veselý, who died in 1517. The following owner was Petr Tluk, who was a councillor in the 1520s and exchanged the house in 1532 with Jan Nyndrtom for his house No. 9 in the square. In 1533 Jan Nynrdtom sold it to a maltster Vaněk, who is mentioned there until 1553. Panská no. 21, entrance portal In 1554 a Rosenberg cook Urban Šlechta is mentioned there for the first time. He moved to the house from a no-longer-existing house in Široká street and stayed there until 1571. At the beginning of the 1570s he moved to the house No. 55 in Latrán and the house No. 21 was obtained by Wilhelm von Rosenberg. During the festive initiation of the first wife of Wilhelm von Rosenberg, Kateřina Rožmberská of Brunswick, to Český Krumlov in 1557, the house was inhabited by Petr Veselský. Then the Rosenberg ruler sold it to Jan Feilinger, who is first mentioned there in 1573. After Jan´s death in 1586 his widow Voršila married a Rosenberg mine official Josef Stöckl , who lived in the house until 1602. The widow Voršila Stöckl died in 1603 and the house was bought by a bricklayer Hans Simonell in the same year. Simonell´s heirs sold the house in 1620 to a maltster Kašpar Froschauer. In 1635 Kašpar exchanged the house for the house of his stepson Šimon Schumann in Rybářská street. A cutler Šimon Schumann lived in the house, cooked and had beer on tap there also in 1654. From 1665 a municipal briclayer Antonín Bossi stayed there, followed by a town maltster Martin Jannoch. From 1698 the house belonged to a maltster Filip Hengster, whose family lived there until 1800. From 1757 Jakub Hengster ran his hatter´s trade in the house. At least to the 1840s the house belonged to Václav Panna and from 1861 to František Thaller.
