«Solomonic columns», which according to tradition could be marvelled in King Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem, are columns whose shafts are rotated around their own axis. Starting from the ancient model of the «colonne vitinee» in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, the architecture and furniture art of the Baroque period was all about the playful spiral columns, but even later, perhaps out of a romantic longing for Italy, they were occasionally imitated, as can be seen in the example of this Biedermeier vanity dressing mirror.
