Authentic Nautical Aluminum Porthole

This item is a 19.25″ Aluminum Two-Dog Porthole that has been salvaged and lightly cleaned. Both 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.


Diameter: 19.25″
Glass Diameter: 13.75″
Depth: 5.25″
Weight: 16.5 lbs.

This porthole has an inset on the back, which will sit inside of the wall, allowing the porthole to display on the wall with bolts keeping it fastened. The inset measures 0.5″ in depth, 15.75″ in diameter. 

You will be shipped a 19.25″ Aluminum Two-Dog Porthole like the one shown in the photos.


The word “porthole” has nothing to with its location on the port side of a ship, but originated thanks to Henry VII of England in 1485. The king demanded on mounting guns that were too large for his ships and French shipbuilder, James Baker was brought on to solve the problem. He pierced the ship’s side so that the cannon can could be mounted inside. When there was heavy weather or the cannons were not in use, the openings in the ships were fitted with covers that latched tightly. These were called porte, which means door in French. Porte became port thanks to the English and eventually any opening on a ship was called a porthole.
