Our wrought iron products are all hand forged. So though similar will not be identical. Each piece is hand finished and given a bees wax coating. All our hand forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look.
We have spent a lot of time looking for a blacksmith to make these old type hinges for us. We where very pleased when we found this artisan blacksmith. The blacksmith is highly skileed in his craft and has our passion for quality wrought iron work. These traditional hinges are made in the old fashioned way on the anvil. The hinge will show signs of hand forging. When each hinge is complete it is hand cleaned and polished. Once polished it is treated with hot black oil. the hot black oil is a very old way of treating wrought iron. The oil does two thigs for the hinge. Firstly it stops the wrought iron from excessive rusting. Secondly it give the hinge an even colour along it’s entire length. Screws for fixing the hinges will be provided in with your package.
We have many other products that are all hand forged to show you. Please take this opportunity to take a look around.
