Authentic Large Rectangle Brass Porthole
19 In Stock
This authentic large rectangle brass porthole is one example of several portholes we recently recovered from a shipyard in the Great Lakes Region of the US. I have several portholes of this design in stock.
This large rectangle porthole has a total weight of 66 pounds. The outside frame measures 20 1/4 by 28 1/4 inches. The original glass measures 15 3/4 by 23 1/2 inches. The flange on the back side of this porthole measures 16 7/8 by 25 1/2 inches, and it extends out from the frame by just a little less than one inch.
The original glass is free of any cracks but does have minor surface wear and minor scratches. This porthole was polished, but I would not consider it a fresh polish job. The paint has been removed, but the brass surfaces have taken on a weathered look.
The closure dogs on this porthole have a very unique design. The shape of the closure dogs is one aspect that you need to focus in on. When was the last time you saw a closure dog shaped like this? Now, for the most unique part of the closure dog design is the closures operate from the back side of the window. Think about it, most porthole designs have the closure dogs on the front side of the window. With this design you can have the look of the brass porthole on the outside wall, and have the opening and closure dogs on the inside of the wall. It truly is a very rare design, and opens up the door for a variety of different and functional uses.
