Original Piano Candlesticks

Original Piano Candlesticks

Towards the end of WWI or WWII, many metal objects containing crucial alloys were collected for the arms production, and when access to electric power was granted to most households, the old piano candlesticks were dismantled, so that almost all original candlesticks disappeared from the pianos. Unfortunately, there are thus few pianos left that would still have the original and authentic candle holders mounted (here is an example of a Schiedmayer piano). But there are also many piano owners who buried the candlesticks or hid them otherwise as a precaution – to appear later not at the original piano but on flea market etc.

Here is a selection of original candlestick pairs (there are always two of them). I've found a special workshop that can reproduce ancient originals. So if you have a special request - or, as so often, there is only one candlestick or the base left, please contact me.
