Wrought Iron T Hinge
Our wrought iron T hinge. This is a pair of our medium sized vintage style Tee hinges, or T Hinges, with arrowhead finishes. Pre-drilled hinge plates and matching fixing screws are provided. These mid-sized antique hinges are 6 inches in length.
The rectangular hinge leaf measures 10.5cm by 1.7 cm and the decorative hinge leaf is 13cm long. The head of the arrow measures 2.5cm wide.
Our wrought 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 hand-forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look. These vintage old type T hinges are produced for us in a small blacksmith shop by artisan smiths.
Each piece is hand forged on the anvil in the very old traditional way. Our blacksmiths are highly skilled artisans and take great pride in their work. This will show in the quality of the finished product.
After each hinge has been hand forged it is hand cleaned and polished. Once this process has been carefully compleated the next stage is to dress the hinge. The T hinge is dressed with a coating of natural beeswax. The natural beeswax is put onto the hinge and will do two things.
Firstly the wax will seep into the microscopic holes on the surface of the wrought iron. This leaves a regular coating of wax that is spread evenly over the hinge. This is good as the coating of wax will prevent any excessive rusting. The second thing that the beeswax achieves is that it will even out the colours of the hinge. The hinges colours will be black with some areas of golden brown.
As these hinges are totally hand made each piece will be similar but they will not be identical.
You will find contained in with your delivery all the screws you will need for the installation.
