This is a 50 inch tall original ship’s air vent that was removed from the SS Jean Lafitte. The SS Jean Lafitte was a 26 car ferry that operated between Mayport Florida and Ft. George Florida.

This historical vent weighs about 38 pounds and is made of tin. It is unrestored so you can expect a nice original patina that includes minor surface rust and a few dents.  The large opening is 19 1/2 inches wide and the bottom opening is about 11 1/2 inches wide.

Use this vent as a display in your nautical collection, or make it into a stand for your mail box.
