Iron House Hinges

The earliest hinge common to all the colonies is of course the ordinary strap type, plain and stout. Sometimes of necessity these were made of old wagon tires, as for a like reason we find old oxshoes wrapjointed for a side member to the strap. Aside from beveling, little ornamentation is found on these earlier hinges excepting at their finials, which were usually round or ovate, but occasionally arrowhead, heart, fishtail and in rarer instances tulip or fleurdelis in form.

The early Cross Garnets as a rule were also simple in form, and such ornament as they had was more or less for the purpose of added strength rather than decoration.

Excepting the infrequent Jacobean Cockshead patterns, a few of the Dutch, and those of the Moravian and other early German sectarians of Pennsylvania, there is little in the way of decorative treatment of hinges that at all approaches the florid European examples with which the average smith of those days must have been familiar. This is but natural under the circumstances, for the stern necessities of early colonization gave little opportunity for devoting time or thought to matters of estheticism, which the rewards of privation and labor later permitted. The seeming lack of artistry in the hinges of that period may have been due to a stern protest against frills, or as some contend, was just an expression of the inherent good taste of the first settlers, but the most potent factor was probably economic.
