A pair of our cottage hinge fronts with Gothic fleur de lys head finishes, and matching fixing screws provided. The cottage hinge fronts such as these are ideal for creating a rustic look to your doors. You will not need to rehang them using antique hinges. To look authentic we recommend that vintage hinge fronts cover half to two thirds the with of the cottage door they are being fixed to. These old wrought iron hinges are 18 inches (45 cm) in length and the antique fleur de lys head measures 9 cm across.
Our traditional wrought iron products are all hand forged. So though similar will not be identical. Each rustic piece is hand finished and given a bees wax coating. All our hand forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look.
When your package is delivered you will receive all the correct amount of fixings to enable you to fit the vintage dummy hinges. In this case the fixings will be our cottage screws. These old type screws will be black with a domed slotted head.
We would always suggest that you make a pilot hole for the screws before attempting to fit them. You can make this hole with either a small drill bit or with a bradawl. The reason for this is that you will now be able to drive the screws in straight. The screw heads will not fit flush to the face of the dummy hinge making a secure fixing and a neater finish.
These hinges have been made by highly skilled artisan blacksmiths. We have chosen to work with these smiths because they show a deep passion for their craft and are capable of producing quality work. These hinges are traditionally made in the time honoured way on the anvil and will show hand forging marks.
We have many more products we would like to show you on our site so please take this opportunity to have a good look around.
