An authentic WWII Liberty Ship Hatch Cover re-purposed into a nautical coffee table in the 1970's. This hatch was taken from the Liberty Ship SS ‘Rudolph Kauffman’ as stated on the etched brass plate in the center of the table top. Thick yellow pine board top and with wide metal banned ends in an amber patina and half cup cut-out with metal band (used to hook cable to lift cover from hatch). Classic harvest style legs with center stretcher. Table measures 27" X 59 1/2" X 15" tall. A wonderful, highly sought after nautical table, perfect for your nautical room and coastal home!
This table was the personal property of Captain William H. Hamilton, Jr. (now deceased). Captain Hamilton was the co-author of the book Night Fighter: An Insider’s Story of Special Ops From Korea to SEAL Team 6 with Charles W. Sasser. The book recaps the author’s personal accounts - the “Father of the US Navy SEALs” tells his story of founding the most effective and feared fighting force ever conceived.
