A pair of our traditional hinge fronts hinge fronts with Gothic fleur de lys head finishes, and matching fixing screws provided. Our traditional hinge fronts such as these are ideal for creating a rustic look to your doors without having to rehang them using antique hinges. To look old and authentic we recommend that hinge fronts cover half to two thirds the width of the cottage door they are being fixed to. These antique wrought iron hinges are 15 inches (38 cm) in length and the fleur de lys head measures 9 cm across.
Our vintage wrought iron products are all hand forged. So though similar will not be identical. Each piece is hand finished and given a bees wax coating. All our hand forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look.
We have found an artisan blacksmith who is now making these old black products for us. The blacksmith that we have chosen is highly skilled in this old craft. The work is to a very high standard. You will be able to see this in the finished product. The dummy hinges will show forge marks from where they have been hand forged on the anvil. Once complete each hinge is coated with a fresh layer of natural beeswax. The bees wax protects the hinge from excessive rusting and will also give the hinge a more even colour. Thee colour of the hinge front will be from burnt orange to black.
We will supply you with the correct amount of fixings for the hinge in this case the fixings are screws. The screws are of an old cottage deign and will be slotted black screws with a domed head.
We have hundreds more products to show you on our site. While you are here please take a moment to have a good look around at them. All our products are either hand forged or hand cast. Thank you
