- Portholes -

We carry salvaged brass and aluminum portholes as well as porthole tables
that have been made using salvaged and repurposed portholes.
*Any measurements listed are approximate

**Check the HOMEPAGE of our website for the most recent shipment arrivals
for any new batches of salvaged portholes.

Pieces that are available will read "available" under the photo; otherwise that piece has been sold.
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.


One of our favorite ideas is this masterfully crafted porthole fish tank.
A beautiful home for "Beta the Fish"
and a brilliant alternative to conventional windows.

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.
Round brass portholes / deadlights:
