This unusual butterfly hinge pair was manufactured from around 1900 to the 1920s. The flashed copper treatment was very popular during those decades. This pair is in very good shape. They have all of the flashing still intact on the surface. These are half-mortise hinges. This means that the plain half of the hinge is embedded into the frame of the door, while the fancy half is fastened to the front of the door. This causes the spine and ball finials to protrude from the door and allows the door to swing freely.
The plain half of the hinge measures 3 1/2 inches vertically and 1 1/2 inches wide. The fancy, butterfly half measures 3 1/2 inches vertically and 2 1/2 inches wide. From ball finial tip to fall final tip is 4 3/4 inches. This pair can be used on a left-hand door or right-hand door, by flipping the hinge pins.
We have cleaned and oiled the pair. Screws will be provided.
