Our traditional old black hinges are wrought iron products they 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.
Our hinges are hand forged by artisan blacksmiths. These artisans were chosen by us for their skill in working with wrought iron and for their passion for making it. It takes years to master this craft the quality of the hinges will show you their skill. All the hinges are produced in the ancient way forged on the anvil. The hinges will show these forging marks. As each piece is made by hand each hinge will be similar but not identical. Once the hinges are made they are hand cleaned and polished at this stage they a dipped in natural beeswax. The beeswax soaks into the tiny pit holes on the surface of the wrought iron and provides a sealing coat. This will protect the iron from excessive rusting. The beeswax will also give the hinge an even colour. The colour of the hinge will be from black to golden brown.
The correct amount of fixing screws will be included in your package. The screws will be cottage type screws. They will be slotted and black with a traditional domed shaped head.
