Our antique cast iron hinges are all individually hand forged, and so they are similar but not identical. Each traditional piece is hand finished and given a cottage beeswax coating. All our hand-forged products are rustic and carefully aged. Once installed these products will look old and authentic.
All of our hinges are hand-forged. When we say hand forged this means that each hinge has been made in the most authentic and ancient way hand made on the anvil.As each hinge is hand made they will be similar but not identical.
Once each hinge has been compleated it needs to be dressed. To dress the hinges we treat them with natural beeswax. Again this is a very old and traditional way of preserving wrought iron. The hinges are dipped into natural beeswax. The beeswax helps the wrought iron in a number of ways. The first way the wax helps the iron is that it will seep into the tiny holes on the surface of the iron. This enables the wax to form a thin coating over the surface of the iron and thus prevents excessive rusting. The wax also ensures an even colour to the hinge. The colour of the hinge will now be mainly black, but because we want to produce an aged look to the hinge there will be areas of golden brown visible.
A full set of screws will be included with your order.
