Product Description

Behold, our Vintage Polished Brass Ships Port Window, 17.5″ – Cover Removed. This is the same port window as P5-12, except we removed the chrome plated cover from the front, so that the glass is visible. Due to the cover holding the dogs in place, they currently hang loose. There are a few options for this, you can ask us to remove the dogs, leave them as-is, or we can glue them to be in an up-right position permanently.

You can expect some minor wear to the surfaces of the frame. The glass is original and may require additional cleaning. This would make for a wonderful porthole mirror in a bathroom, bar, or another nautically themed room. For an additional fee, we can install a mirror overtop the existing thick glass.

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


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.
