The twenty-foot spiral staircase was part of the original staircase when the Eiffel Tower opened the world recognition in 1889.
The Eiffel Tower was designed by the French engineer Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, depicted to the left, for the 1889 exhibition in Paris.

The helix staircase, part of the connection between the two and three levels, was part of the tower structure until 1983, when lifts were installed.

The French auction house, Artcurial, estimates that the staircase is worth $ 40,000- $ 60,000.
Better move quickly as well. The auction will take place on 27 November.
The steps for sale are currently being installed in the Artcurial courtyard at the Rond-pont des Champs-Elysées for public display.
This is the third time Artcurial will present a slice of the Eiffel tower at the auction. In 2013, an initial section measuring 3.5 meters went for € 220,000 ($ 249,000). In 2016 another division went for € 523,800 ($ 593,000).
