Every part of this Gothic sconce was created in 1872 in Berlin, initially as a piano. Only the smokey mirrors and candles are from our time.

• Candles included (used slightly for the photos)
• 24" x 56" x (13" away from wall)
• Very old, worn with character piano body parts
• Shipped flat, easily assembled with old screws from the piano
• Casts great shadows on the wall
• Dark and creepy in a good way

I build musical furniture and needed the inner workings of a piano, keeping the best parts of the exterior of an amazing piano from 1872. This is what I decided to build with them. When walking up to this piece, it creates a special situation... it both lights and offers reflection. There are four candles, but they are all reflected again in the mirrors, creating a complex scene of Gothic negative spaces and smokey windows. The three mirrors are only partially reflective (I'm using the term smokey to explain that), allowing the entire piece to be darker than a normal, bright mirror.

I will pack this very carefully, and when it arrives, all it needs is for the shelves to be screwed in with a flat head screwdriver (by hand is best) and a beefy hook or two on the wall. Its not too heavy, as it was hanging from only two screws in drywall.

Feel free to contact me about this very unique item,

Thanks, Tor
