This pair of hinges made by the Stanley Works is premium quality. The nickel plating is high gloss and in great shape. The photo reflected the nickel. We know they are old because of the stamped Stanley heart on the back of each hinge. The company started making hardware in 1843 in New Britain, Connecticut. Between 1893 and 1920, however, the company stamped all of its hardware with a heart and the letters “SW” to honor their out-going president William Hart who had been with the company for many years. Since this pair has the stamp, we can date them from about 1900 to 1920.
This pair of hinges is the basic butterfly design. They have a 7/16-inch off set to allow for the door. The smaller wing, that mounts on the box frame, measures one inch deep and 2 7/8 inches vertically. The hole centers are 1 3/4 inches. The wing that fastens to the door measures 1 3/8 inches deep and 2 7/8 inches vertically.
We will provide nickel-plated screws.
