Many pianos before 1920 had original candlesticks, which were very necessary at that time and are still very decorative today. Not all households had electric light - and certainly not everywhere in the room. Therefore the piano candlesticks were not only decorative - but above all important. After 1930, chandeliers were and are hardly found on pianos, if at all, then only as an optical accessory.
Nowadays light at the piano is still important. According to taste, spotlights, floor lamps, music stand lamps, clamp lamps, etc. can be used to save energy and provide light.
If you are looking for the original or matching candlesticks for your old piano, you have come to the right place. We probably have the largest collection of original piano chandeliers worldwide. In addition, we can have missing candlesticks or parts of candlesticks made true to the original by specialized belt masters. In addition, we still have illustrations in the original documents of that time to many pianos, in order to reconstruct, which chandelier models were installed at that time.
The original piano chandeliers of that time were mostly made by special factories for the piano manufacturers either specially according to drawings - or ordered from a current offer on customer request. During the world wars, chandeliers were confiscated and also stolen - or brought to safety as a precaution. In addition, the owners removed the candlesticks when electricity was a sign of prosperity in the house and these decorations on pianos went out of fashion. Therefore, very few pianos from that time still have the original chandeliers.
