When we mention “sweetheart” hardware, we are meaning hardware that is etched with a heart from the Stanley Works Co. William Hart worked for the Stanley Company from 1884 to 1919 and made great strives for the company. To honor his work and devotion, Stanley stamped hardware with a heart engraved “SW” from 1893 to 1920. Therefore, much of the flashed copper hardware has this heart.
This pair of 31/2 inch hinges are in outstanding condition. The copper coating and flashing are on both sides of the hinges and the finish is almost like new. These flat hinges measure 3 1/2 inches across as well. Each leaf is 1 1/2 inches wide.
The pair has four ball finials. They are loose and ready to use. Screws will be included.
