Mirabell Palace in Salzburg: Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau had it built in 1606 as a generous gift for his great love, Salome Alt.
The romance of this story is reflected in the Mirabell pattern. With curvaceous ends to the handles and encircling threads, it borrows from the sensuous lines of the Baroque.
In 1956 Oswald Haerdtl adapted this original design to reflect a contemporary feeling for form.
