London, May 27 (ANI): The personalised balcony railings gifted by John Lennon to his beloved Aunt Mimi have been put up for sale.

The late Beatle had purchased the white iron railings bearing seven hearts for Mimi at the time when the band was at its peak in Sixties.

It is believed the rocker came up with the balcony from where Mimi could watch the boats pass by while the hearts were to represent his love for the lady who raised him since he was five.

The railings changed many addresses after Mimi passed away in 1991 and are now being auctioned in Bournemouth.

“We have already had quite a lot of international interest,” the Daily Express quoted David Brasher, of House and Son auctioneers, as saying.

“Because they are such an unusual thing I don’t think I can be drawn on what they will make, either very little or quite a lot. All it takes is a couple of fanatical memorabilia buyers,” he added. (ANI)
