Decorative elements?

Their position/location doesn't suggest any particular function.

Those are lock mechanisms for the fall and lid. Usually seen on institutional pianos.

The rims on Schimmels are made of maple. Boobie woogie, due to its energetic nature, stimulates the wood to such an extent that it emits sap when played like that. Those “bolts” are the collection spigots for the sap. If she played several pieces, you would probably see buckets hanging from them. In the end, it all goes to Northern Europe's favorite syrup brand, Ms. Schimmelsworth.

Actually, that is one of my favorite boogie-woogie music videos on Youtube, and I'm a huge Ladyva fan! smile

She's lovely, very talented, an extraordinary pianist, and has a grand stage persona.

As for the boogie-woogie being energetic, it certainly is! It is part of my routine exercise regiment; walk on stair stepper, 15 minute sets, lift weights 15 minutes sets, do sit ups, 50 per set, ride elliptical machine, 15 minutes, play boogie-woogie on the piano, 15 minutes sets, with a 10 minute rest between sets. smile

Endorphin surge after exercise equipment workout... moderate. Endorphin surge after boogie-woogie workout on the piano... more than moderate. smile

Dang she is good! And on one of my favorite pianos. That’s quite a treat. Thanks for sharing.

I like this explanation! It makes the most sense especially at Christmas!

Here she plays on another piano, a smaller type Ritmuller grand.
Watch how the bolts of the piano are coming loose, close to collapse...😆🤓

Some guitars are fitted with a quick "drop tune" lever to adjust the tuning scale. Perhaps these knobs are to quickly shift between "equal temperament" and "honky tonk" tunings! wink

New one, where she gives new meaning to the word 'Rolicking' .
