These antique brass hinges are simply the finest butt hinges on the market today. Machined from solid brass extrusions for exceptional precision and heft. The 7 knuckles are fitted with extremely close tolerances, the fixed pin will never loosen, and each leaf is 3/32" thick. There is no finer cabinet hinge. As good, or better, than solid brass butt hinges costing twice as much.
Horton Brasses' beautiful antique brass hinges are the essential complement to doors, cabinets, and reproduction furniture. For finding the best stylistic match, choose from standard and ball-tip solid brass butt hinges, as well as seven finishes ranging from light to antique to bright.
Each hinge is supplied with a set of color matched brass screws and second set of zinc plated steel screws for installation.

I am very pleased with these hinges for which I chose the bright finish. They are an excellent value enhanced by the inclusion of mounting hardware.
good, but not as good as they used to be, July 8, 2019 By Bob Wilkins (Yarmouth Port, MA)
It's been some years since I have ordered these hinges. They used to be thicker, the difference being that thin shims are required if you want to apply to the same (deeper) hinge mortises that were cut for the old hinges.
-from Horton Brasses-our hinges have been exactly the same since at least 2003.
great hinges, but..., June 15, 2019 By Michael Kaplan (Santa Fe, NM)(Verified)
I love the fact that Horton sends steel screws in addition to the brass screws, that's a classy touch. However, the brass screws are tapered- the steel screws are not. The upshot is that if you first use the steel screws, the remaining holes are slightly too large for the brass screws. When I tried to install the hinges "for real," I got almost no "bite" with the brass screws and did not feel confident using them. I used the steel screws, which are not a color match for the hinges, (and used a Sharpie to camouflage them)
Solid Brass Hinges OK, but not as expected., March 12, 2019 By Anonymous (Bismarck, ND)(Verified)
I bought these high priced hinges because they were highly recommended in an article on woodarchivist.com. The author said that the space between the closed leaves was the perfect 1/32 inch needed for inset doors on a fine cabinet. That is not the case. The space is exactly 1/16 inch. If I had known this, I would have used the other much less expensive solid brass hinges that I had on hand that had the same measurements. Beware, the hinges have been polished and black residue from the polish will get all over your wood if you don't clean them thoroughly. The phillips slots in the screws don't really seem to fit any drivers I have - and I thought I had everything. Otherwise these hinges are high quality, but very expensive - $50 for hinges for two cabinet doors seems excessive.
Note from Horton Brasses-gap in hinges is designed for a 3/32" reveal between door and face frame. Use a size zero phillips head screw driver for the screws.
