Our wrought old type 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 traditional hand-forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look.
When we wanted to make our range of hand forged hinges our first priority was to find somebody capable of making them for us. It took us quite a while to find this artisan blacksmith.
All our hinges are hand forged in the traditional way on the anvil. The highly skilled smith that makes these for us is very passionate about his work and the final result will show you his skill. The hinges once forged are hand cleaned and hand polished. Once this process has been compleated the hinges are now ready to be dressed.
The next stage in making these hinges is to dress them. To do this the hinges are treated with natural beeswax. The beeswax serves two purposes. The first purpose is the beeswax leaks into the small holes in the wrought iron by doing this the wax forms a moisture barrier between the iron and the air. This will stop the wrought iron from rusting excessively. This is a very ancient way of dressing wrought iron.
