15″ Tee hinge
A pair of our black wrought iron rustic tee hinges, or T hinges, hand made in black iron and with rounded penny end heads. These traditional black wrought iron hinges are available in a range of sizes and we stock other cottage door furniture to match. These particular antique pairs are 15 inches in length and so suited to a larger door. We recommend the rustic hinge length should cover half to two-thirds of the door width. Fixing screws are provided and the hinge base plates come with predrilled holes.
The rectangular hinge leaf measures 13cm by 3.3 cm and the decorative hinge leaf is 33cm long. The penny end head measures 3.5cm wide.
Our wrought iron products 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.
All of our hinges are hand forged. They are made in a small blacksmith’s shop by artisan blacksmiths. The hinges are only made for us. Each hinge is individually hand forged in the ancient traditional way on the anvil. The hinges will show the marks from the hand forging. Once the hinges have been compleated they are then hand polished and cleaned. Once this process has been compleated the hinges are now ready to be dressed.
Now complete the hinges would not be finished without being dressed. To dress the hinges natural beeswax is used. The hinges are placed in the wax. The beeswax now soaks into the tiny holes on the surface of the wrought iron. This soaking forms a small layer of wax on the surface of the iron. The result is that the iron is now protected from the air and this will prevent excessively rusting.
Your hinges will be delivered with the correct amount of fixing screws.
