Schultz Ornamental Iron
Most ornamental iron companies can make this railing. It would be 100% custom, so probably a little pricey. But anyone can make something like this. Again this is a custom railing. Not a prefabricated rail.

Why did you position the piano this way? - Piano lids are meant to be open facing out and positioned so a singer or instrumentalist can stand in the crook of the piano to perform. This looks very awkward to a musician's eye.

Agreed. The piano should open toward the room for better sound, not the wall! I don't think a musician lives here.

Kit Pollard added this to The Princess Fantasy All Grown Up
I love this sweeping, dramatic stairway and how it works with a very traditional baby grand piano.
A grand piano needs not only a lot of room, but a spot that will highlight its acoustics and the player's skill. This beautiful foyer suits its grandeur. I think Liberace might have oohed and ahhed over this curved staircase and intricate railings.
