Our wrought iron door hinges are all hand forged. So though similar will not be identical. Each piece is hand finished and given a beeswax coating. All our hand-forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look.
These hinges are hand forged for us by an artisan blacksmith. The blacksmith who makes these hinges for us is highly skilled. As important to use is his commitment too wrought iron and his capability to produce quality products. Once the hinges have been compleated on the anvil they are hand cleaned and hand polished. The hinges are then dipped into natural beeswax. The beeswax wax helps the wrought iron in two ways. Firstly the wax soaks into the tiny holes on the surface of the iron. This allows the iron to form a continuous layer over the surface of the hinge. The beeswax layer now forms an airtight layer over the hinge and this will prevent excessive rusting. The beeswax will also give the hinge a more even colour. The colour of the hinge will be mainly black but may show areas of a golden brown.
When your hinges arrive you will have a full set of screws provided with them to allow you to install them correctly. These screws will be black and traditional with a slotted domed head.
