Hello, I’m hoping someone might be able to help me find a source for some odd hinges. Below are three photos of the one complete hinge I have. They go on a large (6 feet long) antique console that my wife bought in San Antonio. The console was water damaged in a flood and “fixed up” rather crudely – but she got it at a good price. It has four of these hinges, but three are missing parts – the pins and the caps. Besides the photos, the only other information I have is that it has “Industria Argentina” stamped on the back. Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide.

An exact replacement would be preferable, but if (when) I get desperate, close will be OK.

That would be OK if they’re close enough to maintain the look of the piece and not require major refitting.

Thanks for your reply, but, no I’m not looking anymore. I found several from marine suppliers that were close but wouldn’t fit with the hinge mortises already in the piece. So I wound up having a local machine shop make replacement pins for me.

Have your say...
