Interior door salvaged from the tugboat Esso Massachusetts. Four paneled door constructed with a solid mahogany frame with the top and bottom panels with slide panels that expose horizontal slat vents when removed. This design would allow air to vent during the warm months and closed off when cold. Retains its original lock, handles and hinges. This door has a chip out of the wood on the bottom left of the back side of the door (see closeup in image gallery above).
Width: 22-5/8", Height: 72-1/4", Thickness: 1-3/8"
