Hi Everyone,
I’m new here, so if this is in the wrong forum category, I apologize.
I’m wondering if anyone can identify this type of hinge? I really like it and thinking about using it for a watch display box I’m designing.
If anyone can ID this hinge, and maybe a source to buy a couple, I’d appreciate it.

Thanks,

It’s called a quadrant hinge. Brusso is one company that makes them. Rockler also sells a no-name version for a lot less, but isn’t as nice.

Side rail hinges are my favorite, and are similar. But no need to cut a mortise for the arm, and only need to cut one slot.

Those are nice looking hinges of course for that price they better be.

Nothing takes away from a very nice looking box like cheap hardware.
