But the pièce de résistance will be the sale of a 26-foot tall section of a wrought-iron spiral staircase from the Eiffel Tower. The 40-step staircase, one of the largest items ever on the block at Drouot, is expected to fetch between 60,000 and 80,000 euros.
As you might imagine, Paris nostalgia buffs are expected to turn out in droves for the event.
Bidding starts at 2 pm on December 14, Drouot Richelieu, 9 rue Drouot in the 9th arrondissement. Preview is Saturday December 12 from 11 am to 6 pm.
Oh... thank you for asking. Yes, I'd like the kiosque, not the vespasienne.
