This is an vintage 6 step ship rope ladder we recovered from one of our salvage operations. This authentic nautical rope ladder has six teak wood steps that measure 20 1/2 inches long, about 4 1/2 inches wide, and about 1 1/2 inches thick. From the top of the rope ends to the bottom of the opposite rope ends, it measures about 6 feet long. The rope is original. We have not cleaned this ladder, so you can use it in as found condition, or use a little soap and a garden hose and clean it up. This ladder section weighs about 33 pounds.
Today people are using these nautical ladders to make book shelves, spice racks, flower racks, or just a nice little set of shelves for your collectibles. While not all the ladders we offer are the top section with the original loops, you have many options to hang these ladders.
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.
