Quadrant hinges are used in high-quality, ornate wooden boxes where a decorative feature is desired.
The L-shaped hinge needs to be recessed into the corner of a box base and lid, with a mortice cut in the base and top to allow for free movement of the integral stay. A sharp chisel can cut these recesses quickly and effectively when marked out or sometimes a routing jig is created to speed up the process if doing multiple boxes.
Available in three finishes - solid brass, gold-plated (a comparison of these two finishes is shown in the second image of the gallery) and chrome-plated.
The gold-plated quadrant hinges are solid brass and then gold-plated and are the most common hinge finish chosen due to its bespoke appearance.
Available in either pairs or packs of 10 (5 pairs). All packs come with matching fixing screws.
