A rare and unique opportunity to purchase original pier cast iron fragments will be offered in a one-off sale on 2nd and 3rd July. The tollbooth parts were found to be in too unstable a condition to be incorporated in a new building open to the public but would make stunning interior decorative and ornamental fixtures for private or commercial properties.
The original castings were used to make the beautiful exact replicas now nearing completion either side of the British Airways i360. They are pristine and stately. The western building will serve as a tollbooth, or ticket office, the eastern one will be The West Pier Tea Rooms.
The sale will take place at Mackley’s site at Henfield Rd, Small Dole, Henfield, West Sussex BN5 9XQ on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July 10am – 4pm.
Pieces include brackets measuring approximately 1100mm x 900mm and columns approximately 3100mm long.
Certificates of authenticity will be issued with each purchase
