Man Buys Eiffel Tower Piece
150,000 Euros For Part of Staircase
Oh the joys of owning a piece of rusted Parisian iron!
Did the romance of the city just capture too much of his heart?
Implications - Not everyone can say that they own a piece of the Eiffel Tower! The staircase piece that was bought by Erik Kurvers was taken from the landmark in 1983 when the elevators were installed. Although the stair is a little battered and rusty, it holds a special piece of Parisian history.
