Rare Antique Hinge

This is a single bronze hinge that was removed from our Treasury Department in Washington D. C.
This is being sold as a single hinge as a collection type item as opposed to being used .

Measures: 5" x 7", "L", approx. 3 lbs. Made by Hopkins & Dickenson around c.1875 & retains its original golden finish.

Notice the fancy face plate that covers the mounting screws doesn’t contain any screws…
This style is very rare and was only made for a couple of years and is in exceptional condition.
A lot of extra machine work went into designing this screw-less cover method only to out-do the competitors two screw style.
I will be happy to explain to the new owner upon request how to remove the decorative cover plate.

Price: $200-
