Transcript The Story of Nuremberg Ketzel Haus (Pilatushaus), Thiergartnerthorplat/. Glossner Haus, Adlerstrasse. Grundherr Haus, i 5S5 (now the Bairischer Hof Karlsstrasse). " Manch edles Briinnlein stromt darin Aus goldnen Rohren schnell dahin." So wrote Hans Sachs in his poem in praise of his native town. And indeed the wells and fountains here are as characteristic though not of course so beautiful as the well-heads of Venice. Far the most important of them is the so-called Beautiful Fountain (Der Scheme Brunnen) in the corner of the Haupt Markt, near the Rathaus. It is in the shape of an octagonal Gothic spire. The construction of it is usually spoken of as contemporaneous with that of the Frauenkirche and the design is likewise attributed to Sebald Schonhofer. But recent researches have shown that it was not built till the years 1385-1396, and that one Heinrich der Palier, or der Parlierer, as he is commonly named in the City Accounts, had the building of it. No doubt he was very much under the influence of Schonhofer, and very likely he may have been his pupil. So much may be gathered from the similarity of the ornamentation on the Frauenkirche and the Beautiful Fountain. In old days, as we have seen, the well was richly painted and gilded. But this is no longer the case. It was carefully restored in great part in 1824 and again it this moment further restoration is in contemplation. The iron railing which surrounds the fountain made by Paul Kohn (1 586). Curious funnels on levers are used for drawing the water, and they remind one irresistibly of that rcductio ad absurdum of the Meistersingers' Guilds, Harsdorfer's " Nuremberg funnel" for pouring in poetry (p. 218). 270
