Nice original 17 inch Aluminum Ships Deadlight has a unique feature, around the mounting bolt holes there is a small raised circular areas. This gives it a little extra nautical character. This aluminum deadlight has been cleaned and polished and can be mirrored. Mirrored would be a beautiful piece in a bathroom, with a pair of aluminum wall sconces on both sides. We’ve seen quite a few customers use aluminum deadlight/porthole mirrors for their bathrooms. You could also throw this up on the wall to add a dash of nautical décor to a room, or even, behind a bar.
The mount ring measures about 17 inches. The glass measures 11.75 inches and is original with light scratches on the surface. Weighs about 10 pounds.
When mounted to the wall, this aluminum porthole will extend out a total of about 1.25 inches. This is an authentic deadlight that was removed from a working vessel. You can expect some minor wear to the surfaces of the frame.
***For an additional charge deadlights/portholes can be fitted with a custom mirror.
