As always, please call or email for pricing; our inventory is constantly updating.

Sold pieces remain pictured to show the wide range of porthole sizes and types that exist,
that we have carried, and that we continue to try to find and salvage.

Portholes come with 2,3, or 4 "dog ears" or "dogs" for short (also known as "keys") which batten down the window to the sash.

One of our favorite ideas is this masterfully crafted porthole fish tank.
Mr. Culpepper himself conjured this one up and after a few hours

and a brilliant alternative to conventional windows
