I think we all know how expensive small brass hinges are for small boxes and jewelry boxes, especially from Rockler which seems to dominate these hinges but I found a company that sells quadrant hinges at:
I bought some hinges from them some months ago and some of them were solid brass while others were brass plated. I could not tell the difference by looking at them until I filed a bit off the end of the swing arm so that it would fit into the lid of the box and made the discovery.
On their website today they are advertised as being “solid brass polished” and I ordered a dozen. Quadrant hinges are a bear to put in and still keep the top aligned with the base (any suggestions as to how to install without all the frustration would be welcomed) but they look really good on a box and right now they are selling them for $4.98 for a pair and they come with the screws. Plus they are made by SOSS.
Search under “hinges” and “SOSS” and the product code is QH5/QH7.
