The door was a ghostly galleon, tossed upon cloudy seas



Here is the pirate ship door. What a fine pirate ship door it is. The privileges of home ownership, they rock.

That is THE BEST DOOR.

Andrew said...

Sand blasted or etched glass is very beautiful. I like it.

paoyi said...

holy crap. That's truly the rockinest door I have ever seen.

Tim said...

Easily one of the top three pirate ship doors I have ever seen.

Beautiful choice - door art is often so stilted and static - one feels the wind and the spray in this one. Glorious.

Apparently tonight's budget contains measures designed to make sure no Australian family will have to go without its own pirate ship door.

Nice door. But it's a navy ship, isn't it?

Meredith said...

Oh damn! Surely not a Navy ship? Laura, perhaps you could do a glass etching course (maybe at Bunnings?) and add a skull and crossbones to it.

Rosanna said...

That is the most awesomest door ever!

Francis Drake would be proud, Laura, as I see by the flags it's an English ship, probably just returning from sweeping the Spanish Main.
I particularly like the high forecastle and lateen-rigged third mast, which marks it as a carrack or 'great ship' as the Tudors called them---though, to be fair, Drake probably would have preferred a race-built galleon.

It is a pirate ship door.

Fiasco da Gama said...

And I hope it well divides your cabins and complements your bulkheads.

Drewzel said...

H'argh, it be a grand door! Ye old scurvy dog, ye!

Fiasco da Gama said...

...And might I add, may it long stay a vital part of your vessel, as idle as a painted ship, upon a painted ocean.

Okay, then, it's a pirate ship door. But judging by the flags, it's an English navy pirate ship door.

lucy tartan said...

Maybe they 'liberated' the flags.

Cap'n Fyodor said...

Maybe, but Frisco should know the flag at the stern shows the nationality: Castilla y Leon, not England.

Also, if he hadn't been dead for so long he'd realise that the placement of the forecastle well behind the stem and its use of topgallant sails give the ship away as a galleon, not a carrack.

What you're looking at is more likely to be a pirate target - i.e. a Spanish galleon (albeit a lightly-laden one, given how high it's riding) - than a pirate ship.

But that will surely put pressure on the supply of pirate ship doors, thus forcing the price up and creating an Overheated Market. (Yeah, I've been spending time at Troppo.) I like Meredith's idea.

Obviously the scurvy dogs haven't run up the skull and cross bones because they are about to hail another ship that will think them friendly and then they will attack! They are pirates after all.
