specialising in Antique Chandeliers, Sales, Repairs, Restoration & Cleaning since 1954

Our background

The G & P Cohn antique Chandelier business was established in 1954 when George Cohn set up a small family-run business in Crawford Street, London. He made his name in the antique Chandelier market by restoring and cleaning damaged Chandeliers. His eye for detail and consumate skills as a metal worker and electrician allowed him to perform all facets of the business. As a result, a specialised and creative enterprise could flourish.

George's love affair with these beautiful light fixtures was also shared by his wife Gerda who nurtured her self-taught talent for old-style pinning. This would be instrumental in not only making the business viable but a prosperous one.

George and Gerda's son Peter also inherited his parents' great passion for these timeless items and took up the mantle at the age of 16, learning the business from the ground up. His wife Ivana was also seduced by the world of antiques and learnt the art of pinning from Gerda. Her meticulousness and attention to detail have made her well-known in the field for her exquisite workmanship. Peter and Ivana still manage the business today along with their son-in-law Ben and continue on the great name of G & P Cohn.
