The pivot hinge is made for overlay doors. One is mounted on the top and the other on the bottom with portions of each bent over and mounted to the frame and door resulting in a concealed hinge. Perhaps the most popular hinge is the spring mounted hinge. Fitted with a small spring inside this door hinge allows the door to close on its own, automatically.
If dealing with cabinet doors the type of hinge you use will depend on the door type. There are three door types; lipped, flush and overlay. A lipped door has a lip cut around it and works well with most hinges. A flush door rests within the frame and works well with butterfly hinges. A butterfly hinge works like a butt hinge but is hung on the outside and is more ornamental ranging in styles from colonial to art deco.
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.
