Item details

A pair of antique French metal moustache hinges. Origianlly these wonderful large decorative hinges were used on shutters and doors. They are made of metal and have the most glorious patina with rusting and paint deposits acquired over many years on the exterior of a French house.

This pair are the decorative part of the hinge that was mounted on the shutter or door. The small peg shaped part that goes on the wall is not with them.

They probably date to the late 1800s or early 1900s.

measurements: they are 10.9 inches wide (27.8 cm) and about 4 inches deep to the top of the edge of the peg holder (10 cm)
weight: 370g

This listing is for both hinges shown in the photos.

If you wish to make multiple purchases I am happy to combine shipping where feasible.

FAQs

I am open to a layaway plan for more expensive items with a combined value of over $100 (including shipping). This way you can split your payments over a period of time between 1 and 3 months. We will agree the payments at the beginning and then your first payment reserves your item. Please note that after you begin your payments I am unable to refund you or cancel the transaction as the item is reserved for you and unavailable for sale to anyone else. The item will stay on reserve until you finish your final payment.

The quickest and most reliable shipping I offer is using the Colissimo service. Shipping times with Colissimo are 5 - 8 working days from dispatch to delivery.

Postage is from France

Small, flat, light items are still sent using the la poste "lettre prioritaire" letter service which has no tracking or insurance. These services can be added for an additional charge.

Small "paquets" are sent using the la poste Paquet Prio International service which has no tracking or insurance. There is a weight limit of 2kg on this service and certain large items cannot be shipped this way. Extra services such as tracking, signature on delivery or insurance are available at an extra charge, please add the upgrade option you want or contact me for a price.

All parcels with a value over $170 or weighing over 2kg will be sent via the Colissimo service This service requires a signature on delivery, includes insurance and is trackable. I will also require a contact phone number for the shipping company.

Please be aware that I ship from France and delivery times outside France and the EU can be longer. Please take this into account when placing your order. I'm afraid I cannot control delivery times and am not responsible for postal delays. If you need your item before a certain date please contact me prior to purchase for a price on expedited shipping.

I will happily ship worldwide and will combine shipping on multiple items. I endeavor to send all items within 3 days of receiving payment however I am not able to ship over weekends.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.

In cases of non delivery the item will be returned to me. I will refund the purchase price of the item upon receipt of the item. For customers in the EU the return postage is free. For customers outside the EU the return postage is chargeable and I will deduct this cost from the item cost and refund the balance.

SHIPPING COSTS FOR BOOKS: I ship books with the low cost Postal service: "Livres et Brochures". They usually take 10 -21 days, however please be aware that some parcels can take over 28 days.Please be patient. If you require a quicker service with tracking, insurance etc please contact me. Please note this service is not available to French destinations.

I wrap the items very carefully however occasionally an item is damaged while in transit. When you receive your parcel, if you see that it is opened, damaged, broken, always open it in front of the postman and ask him to sign a statement if the content is damaged. With this paper , the French poste will reimburse the content at the declared value for all the parcels with insurance. Without that, the insurance will NOT be functional. I cannot be held responsible for breakages during shipping if insurance was not purchased.

Postal costs and delivery delays are beyond my control.
