These rustic Black Butterfly Hinges are available as a 'Half' or 'Full' hinge and in Small and Large sizes. There is a choice of two finishes - Beeswax or Black.
Butterfly Hinges (Full) - They are decorative carpentry hinges with "wings" - resembling those of a butterfly.
Half Butterfly Hinges - They have the same decorative wings but one side is replaced with a butt hinge making them perfect for areas where space is restricted.
The Black is a traditional satin finish, baked in a high-temperature oven giving it an attractive, durable and corrosion-resistent finish. The finish is low maintenance when used internally, if used externally it will require more. In all cases we do recommend that it is wiped with a lightly oiled cloth periodically. This will help to remove surface dirt and restore it back to its original condition.
The Beeswax is the most authentic finish for steel. When the highly skilled blacksmiths have finished forging the hinges the colours left in the steel range from blue to deep red ochre. To preserve these beautiful colours and texture they are finished with just pure beeswax. Because of this they are only suitable for internal use. We recommend that wiping the hinges with beeswax from time to time will help protect and maintain the product. Some surface rust may occur with time, this can be treated with 00 grade wire wool followed by a light coating of beeswax.
Never use any form of metal cleaner or aerosol spray.
Sold in pairs and supplied with fixings. The screws supplied are hand finished, so please take care when fixing. Always use a pilot drill.
