Vintage T hinge Tee hinge
Vintage T hinge. A pair of our rustic tee hinges, or T hinges. These are hand-made in wrought iron and with classic fleur de lys heads. These traditional black hinges are available in a range of sizes. We stock other old door furniture to match. This particular antique pair is 18 inches in length and so suited to a larger door. We recommend the traditional hinge length should cover half to two-thirds of the cottage door width. Fixing screws are provided.
The rectangular hinge leaf measures 13 cm by 3.2 cm. The decorative hinge leaf is 41 cm long. The head of the fleur de lys measures 9 cm wide.
Our wrought iron products are all hand forged. So though similar will not be identical. Each piece is hand finished and given a black oil coating. All our hand forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look. These hinges will have colouring from black to rust
These hinges are surface mount so are straightforward to fit. You will fit them where the rails of the door are situated. On larger door we recommend using three hinges per door. This will hold the door firmly and also prevent warping.
These hinges may be used internally or externally. These are hand forged traditional hinges with an oil finish. When fitted externally after a period of time they will show signs of rust. This is perfectly normal. If you don’t want to leave your hinges looking natural you may choose to paint them. To paint the hinges a good rub down with wire wool will clean the surface. You should buy a good quality rust proof paint to finish off.
