Vintage black hinge front Dummy hinge

Vintage black hinge front. Our hinge fronts or dummy hinges are hand forged. These hinge fronts are sold in pairs. They are used where the door would swing in the opposite direction. You would not normally see the hinge it’s self in this situation so by adding hinge fronts you give the impression that the door hinges are on that side of the door.

Here at The Rustic Merchant we stock a large range of dummy hinges or Hinge fronts. These fronts are sold in three basic and classic designs. Fleur de Lys, Penny end /Bean end and Arrowhead. We make them in many sizes to compliment your door. All the dummy hinges are hand forged on the anvil in the traditional way. They will show signs of hand forging on them.


As these hinges are only for aesthetics you can place them anywhere on the door that suits you. What you may like to consider though is that you don’t place the hinge fronts at an equal distance from the top and bottom. This will make them look wrong. To place them correctly the bottom hinge should be further from the bottom than the top hinge. You might consider placing the top hinge 6 inches down from the top of the door frame. Then measure from the bottom of the door place this dummy hinge 9 inches up. When you look at the door they will seem to be even.

These dummy hinges are finished in a natural bees-wax coating this is the traditional finish for wrought iron. After a period of time these hinges will if fitted an external door front show signs of rust. This is normal and will give you an aged authentic look.

You may decide you want to paint them if so a good rub down with wire wool will remove the bee’s wax prior to painting.
