What Did Titanic's Grand Staircase Actually look like?

I know this is probably a rather difficult topic to answer, as there are no known photos of Titanic's forward Grand Staircase, but from some of my research it seems that there were some substantial differences between Olympic and Titanic's grand staircase designs.

From what I've read online the Titanic's grand staircase was slightly larger than the one found on the Olympic. Being that there have been more support columns found on the wreck, a different design of wood panelling around elevators, larger reception area, different flooring pattern and even a myth/rumour of multiple light cherubs found on every deck level of the staircase. I have also heard that the Honour and Glory crowning time clock, although still Honour and Glory, was a completely different take on the design compared to the one found in the Olympic. Does anyone have any idea what this would have looked like?

The intended design of the Britannic staircase was quite different from that of the Olympic, no Honour and glory clock, being slightly wider and the main feature was to be the addition of a pipe organ, so is it reasonable to assume that there were also major differences between the Olympic and Titanic staircases too?

Hope someone can help

There's no evidence to support that, Ryan - despite the imaginary illustration that's been doing the rounds on the internet for years now.

Best wishes

If the staircase was drastically different it would of been photographed for the shipyards records. Some of the cabins we're different on titanic and we're photographed as with the cafe Parisian and new enclosed A deck promenade.
