P5-45 is a Aluminum Three Dog Nautical Porthole – 19″ (Off-Balanced Inset). What we mean by off-balanced inset is that, instead of the porthole sitting 0.5″ deep for all 360 degrees, about 40% of the inset is 1.25″ deep. When this was installed on a ship, it was custom made to fit the wall it was being put in. This is both unique and allows for a sturdier installation.
The markings on this are 12.12.79, indicating the date of manufacture!
Both of the closure dogs spin on and off with no problem. Some customers have used a porthole like this to make a medicine cabinet in their bathroom. The handy thing about these aluminum portholes is that they weigh less than their brass counterparts — allowing you some more flexibility with methods of mounting it!
There will be slight marking on the glass of this porthole window because it is an authentic salvaged nautical item – you may choose to have a mirror added to this if you dislike the visible salvaged history on the product.
If you are looking for an unique piece of glass to use in a door or a bathroom this item is for you!
