THERE WILL BE AUCTIONED A PART OF THE EIFFEL TOWER

The auction house Artcurial announced that a segment of 3.50 meters from the staircase from the Eiffel Tower, will be auctioned in Paris. Its value is estimated at between 20 000 and 30 000 euros and weighs 750 kg. This piece was part of the spiral staircase linking the second and third floor of this iconic Parisian monument, built by Gustave Eiffel for the Universal Exhibition of 1889. In 1983 the staircase was removed and was cut into 24 pieces. In 2009, a piece of 2.70 meters of the same staircase, exceeded all estimates in a sale that generated hotly contested bids, until the U.S. imposed a bidder paid $ 550,000 for it.
