This water-resistant Antique Salvaged Wooden Ships Door and fame was salvaged from a working vessel. Doors in this style would have been found in the interior of the vessel, like the captains quarters, due to the fact they are not watertight. They were used for entrances to the galley, lounge areas, and any other areas in a vessel that are not required to be watertight and flame resistant.
The solid wood frame of the door measures 72 1/2 inches long by 33 inches wide, 15 inches thick. The door measures 69 1/2 inches long by 29 1/2 inches wide, 2 3/4 inches thick. The tempered glass widow measures 19 3/4 wide by 22 1/2 inches long.
These doors have many uses outside of a working vessel. We have seen removed from the door frame to make kitchen/coffee tables. Used as working doorways in home, restaurant, and bar construction, modified into bar and wine carts/cabinets.
Big Ship Salvage scours the world for nautical antique lights, décor and other items related to the Nautical Life. Brass, copper, stainless steel and sometimes aluminum materials are used to make-up the vintage lights that we find. We soda-blast the old paint off, remove the old wiring and polish before they arrive in our warehouse. Then, we rewire with UL listed bulb sockets and wiring harnesses and get ready for purchase. They are now ready to warm your home, business or restaurant with that nautical feeling we all desire.
