History of the House Residents :
The first known owner of this house was a locksmith Keř in the first half of the 16th century. In 1545 Michl Holzpezna moved there, followed by a tailor Klement in 1568. The house belonged for some time to Matyáš Fuch z Fuchýřova, and afterwards a glassmaker Valtin lived there. From 1601 a baker Mates Mayer stayed in the house. In about the middle of the 17th century (1647 - 1653) the house was owned by a saddler Vít Wolf. A butcher Jakob Klämpfel succeeded him. From 1659 the house belonged to a bricklayer Antonius Bossi, who also owned the house at Radniční No. 24. From further owners we can mention at least a miller Anton Postl and a barley-dealer Sebastian Neubauer, who lived in the house in the 18th century.
