A segment of the original staircase from the Eiffel Tower is up for grabs. The staircase is being auctioned by auction house called Artcurial as part of its Art Déco & Design sale on December 1.
The 2.6-meter segment of the original staircase is a part of the original helical staircase built by Gustave Eiffel and his collaborators for the Universal Exhibition of 1889. The staircase was later dismantled to make room for elevators.
