Description
This is a porthole from the Ericsson. Its made of metal and the swing plate's glass is clouded over. There are two hinges at the top and the nut/dog is still intact. There are nine holds on the metal frame that circle the glass. These are uniformed and presumably holes for screws. The metal on the back of the porthole, looks to be a part of the ship itself.
