A pair of our small antique hinges vintage style Tee hinges, or T Hinges, with Gothic fleur de lys head finishes. Pre-drilled hinge plates and matching fixing screws are provided. These antique hinges are 4 inches in length so are particularly suited to smaller cottage cabinet doors.

Our wrought iron products are all old style hand forged. So though similar will not be identical. Each piece is hand finished and given a beeswax coating. All our aged hand forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look.
These small 4 inch hinges are hand forged. We have looked hard and found artisan blacksmiths to make these hinges for us. Our blacksmiths are highly skilled artisans. They are as passionate about wrought iron as we are. All of our hinges are hand made in the traditional manner on the anvil. The hand forged hinges will show signs of hand forging. Once the hinges are complete it is time to finish them this is called dressing. In order to dress the hinges, they are first hand cleaned and polished. Once this process is complete the hinges are dipped into natural beeswax. The beeswax soaks into the tiny pits in the wrought iron and forms a protective layer over it. This fine layer protects the hinge from excessive rusting. The beeswax also gives the hinge regular colour over its length. The colour will be from burnt orange to black.
