Vintage Brass 21.5 Inch Nautical Ships Porthole

This is a Vintage Brass 21.5 Inch Nautical Ships Porthole. This is the largest circular porthole that we have ever received – and it weighs an incredible 72 pounds.

We can install a mirror onto this if you don’t enjoy the weathered look of the glass. Both dogs spin on and off with no issues. Its hinged window opens freely. This is an authentic brass porthole that was removed from a working vessel. You can expect some minor wear to the surfaces of the frame. The glass is original and may require additional cleaning.

**For an additional charge this porthole can be fitted with a custom mirror.**


Glass Diameter: 14″
Porthole Frame Diameter: 21.5″
When Mounted, Porthole Extends Out: 5.25″
Weight: 72 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 0.25″ in depth and 16.25″ in diameter.

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.
