Advances in metalworking seem to have made a big difference in hinge development. All archeologists have discovered is that pivot posts and sockets were eventually reinforced with metal and several centuries later, cast iron strap hinges became common. Early examples of this type of hinge can be seen throughout Europe. You can also see how the simple strap hinge became more ornate. By the 1600s, smithies were busy forging many items for household use, among this list were a variety of hinges.
Similar to the butt hinge but used only on flush doors; doors that rest within the frame, are butterfly hinges. These cabinet door hinges are also constructed with two flaps with screw holes held together by a pin. The difference is these hinges are mounted on the outside of the door and frame giving your cabinet a decorative touch. They are available in several styles to suit your taste ranging from colonial to art deco and more.
Over a glass of wine with friends, an architect friend of mine and I started talking about hinges. And yes, I know you are thinking what an exciting conversation that must have been. But when you think about it, hinges are everywhere and affect all aspects of our lives. In fact, you probably have at least five hinged items on your person or in your purse/attaché/backpack/briefcase. You might have less, but I think you;ll be surprised as you read on.
