Stanley Sweetheart “Hoosier” Hinge

SKU: P-7355 Categories: , ,


Frederick Stanley started the Stanley Works hardware company in New Britain, Connecticut in 1843. The company still makes hardware today. Starting in 1920, however, the company put a special logo on most of their hardware to honor their president William Hart who ran the company from 1903 to 1919. That logo was a heart with the letters “SW” inside, and was referred to as “sweetheart.”

This hinge is a sweetheart hinge. Because it is for an Indiana kitchen cabinet such as a Hoosier, Sellers, or McDougall, and because of the logo, it dates from 1920 to 1935.

The hinge is an off-set one to allow for the door that off sets from the frame of the cabinet. That off set is 3/8 inch. The hinge measures 2 inches vertically and each wing is 3/4-inch wide.
We will include old screws.
Our opinion: Original old hinges should be used as is. When people paint authentic hinges, they change its antique look and value. We have cleaned and oiled this steel hinge.
