In 1780 was the fountain rebuilt in Baroque style by F.T. Jedlicka. in 1870 was then replaced by the fountain made from sandstone. The resorvoir is made from red sandstone from Nucice and the central column with shell-like bowl is made from yellow ochre sandstone. The architect of the fountain was Josef Freud. The fountain was renovated in 1989 and in 2005.
