Part of Eiffel's original staircase to be auctioned, expected to fetch up to ₹35L
Have you ever dreamed of possessing part of the ultra-famous monument that symbolizes Paris throughout the world? A segment of an original staircase from the Eiffel Tower will be auctioned by Artcurial on December 1, as part of its Parisian Art Deco and Design Sale.
This 2.6-meter segment comes from the historic spiral staircase built by Gustave Eiffel and his collaborators for the Universal Exhibition of 1889. A few years later, an elevator replaced the original staircase between the second and third floor of the iconic monument, which is why the staircase was dismantled. It was separated into 24 segments, two of which measure nine meters.
