The 4-inch hinge is less common than the more standard 3 1/2-inch hinge that is seen on many Victorian-home doors. This size hinge will be found on a larger, heavier front door. This selected hinge is probably a Eastlake pattern. (1870-1890) The pattern has sharp straight lines and arrows, rather than the curves, leaves, bows, etc. of the other Victorian movement.
The hinges is 4 inches vertically and 4 inches across both wings. The pattern is on the front side of the wings and on the front and backside of the spine. The finals measure 1 3/8 inches long. This is a flat hinge. Because of the four screw holes on each wing, this hinge will hold a lot of weight.
We have cleaned and restored this antique. The pin is loose. Screws will also be included.
